|WESTFIELD State Representative Don Humason (R-Westfield) is seeking college students to participate in an internship program in his downtown Westfield District Office at 71 Elm Street. |
Interns are typically responsible for legislative research, bill tracking, and drafting of press releases and constituent correspondence. They will be involved in all the day to day operations of the representative's District Office.
"One of my primary goals is to reconnect citizens to their state government," Humason said. "By allowing college students to participate directly in the legislative process, I hope to inspire them to be involved long-term with their government. "
Hours are flexible to accommodate the student's academic and work schedules. At this time the internships are unpaid however some colleges may give academic credit for this volunteer internship.
"If you or a college student you know may be interested in an internship, please contact me at 568-1366," he said.
