Visits to Trenton will happen if the state begins allowing visitors.


Is the intern expected to work evenings and weekends?  If so, please explain.  Extra work is at the discretion of the intern:  It is not required for the intern to atend evening or weekend events, such as ribbon cuttings, town fairs, roundtables, etc.  but if the inter would like to experience interacting with constituents and accompanying the elected official to events, it is more than welcomed.

The same goes for Trenton visits.  These are typically during the day, but voting sessions could last until well after 5pm.  The intern will not be required to go to Trenton with the Assembly members, but if he or she would like to get the experience of being at a voting session and the process of determining how the elected official will be voting, it is also more than welcomed. 



Do you have any suggestions for the applicants? (Please use additional pages if necessary)


We have a relaxed office environment that looks to each students about government, the voting process and how a district office is best run to help constituents.  We are looking for interns who possess a desire to help people, are passionate about local government and have an interest in state politics.
