Cal in Sacramento: A Summer with Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi
During the summer of 2009, I had the privilege of interning for two months with the office of Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi. I was placed in the press office, which was very exciting because I had previously been involved with publishing the Undergraduate Political Science Association's monthly newsletter. Some of my responsibilities in the press office included drafting press releases and writing talking points for public speeches.
