Stoneham native participates in State House internship program
BOSTON – Senator Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury) welcomed Jen Shannon of Stoneham to the State House as part of an office internship opportunity. Jen is interning within Senator Moore’s State House Office two days each week throughout the winter college break.
“Jen is a bright, accomplished young woman who brings a wealth of ideas to the office,” said Senator Moore. “I appreciate her interest in learning more about the legislative process, and for taking time away from her school vacation to assist me and my staff. I am sure that she found her time at the State House both interesting and rewarding.”
Jen Shannon, daughter of Paul and Cathy, is a sophomore at the University of New Hampshire Durham where she is double majoring in Political Science and History. She is also an active member of Project Sunshine, a club that sends students to visit children in hospitals across the Boston area. Having interned for Representative Michael S. Day (D-Stoneham) while in high school, this is now her second time securing an internship at the Massachusetts State House. Jen’s interest in public safety and intelligence analysis has led to her pursuit of an internship with Senator Moore, who serves as Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security, and the Special Senate Committee on Cyber Security Readiness.
Interns in Senator Moore’s State House office assist with daily office operations, conduct legislative research, attend informational seminars with legislators and constitutional officers, and have a first-hand opportunity to observe the Massachusetts legislative process.
