This week started off busy with much activity throughout the state house. In the office, I helped answer phones and assist where I could. For the rest of the morning, I continued researching the South-East region of the report.
At 11:00AM, I attended the Senate Speaker Series lecture by Senate President, Senator Stanley C. Rosenberg. Although I have had the opportunity to attend many great speaker events throughout the summer, today’s presentation by President Rosenberg was one of the best. President Rosenberg talked about his circuitous route to elected office and encouraged all of the interns to never discount their experiences. All experiences are important in developing an elected official’s world view. I appreciated his frankness and willingness to discuss a plethora of topics on the questions asked by the other interns.
For the rest of the day I continued my research, making significant progress in the South-East section of the report.
