Internship
District Office of State Senator Rich Funke, 55th district;  Fairport, NY

Duties
My duties vary depending on the day.  However typically I am involved in: drafting proclamations, letters of support, and other forms of constituent correspondence; researching and drafting blogs, press releases, and posts on various forms of social media; reading constituent letters and updating the office database in order to maintain contact with district members; compiling logistical information of district events the Senator and the team can attend; attending district events in support of the Senator and the team.

Most Significant Experience
The most useful skill I have learned from this internship experience is crafting concise written work. Through drafting various types of documents/letters I have learned to properly convey essential ideas and logistical information in a small amount of space.
