Legislator Bosworth Hosts Summer Internship Program
This summer, Legislator Judi Bosworth (D-Great Neck) hosted an internship program for four young adults. Two college students participated as interns: Allison Lopatkin, a Great Neck resident who attends the University of Rochester, and Matthew Woo, a Manhasset resident who attends Vassar College. In addition, Matthew Joe, a Manhasset resident who begins classes at Cornell University this fall, and Miraaj Bagia, a rising senior at Manhasset High School, interned in the Legislator’s office. Legislator Bosworth said, “Our interns this summer were outstanding. The ideals of good government were reflected in their enthusiasm, commitment and work ethic. They are our future leaders and we can be assured that our future is in good hands.”
All interns entered the program eager to learn more about the world of government and law, and all are leaving having benefited significantly from the experience. Whether attending full legislature sessions and hearings, or helping the Legislator provide constituent services to the community, interns were able to get a real sense of the duties of a Nassau County Legislator. During their time in Legislator Bosworth’s office, the interns assisted in day to day office functions including drafting letters to constituents, writing press releases, organizing press clippings and photos, and researching a variety of local and county wide issues, including the averted elimination of the Living Wage Law and the proposed merger of the 6th and 2nd precincts. They got to see first hand the importance of being responsive to constituents and providing help in a caring and thoughtful way. It was a unique opportunity and was an exciting and enjoyable experience for all involved.
