Shawn’s interns get the opportunity to learn about politics in a hands-on fashion. From canvassing neighborhoods in the district to policy and constituent work in the State House, they are directly exposed to all sides of state and local politics.

“This was my largest group of interns ever” said Dooley. “This group of students showed me an impressive amount of intelligence, diligence, and most importantly drive to make a difference in their communities which brought our internship program to a new level and set the bar high for legislative interns throughout the State House. Their service in my office undoubtedly helped me be a better Representative and was of great benefit to all residents of my district. I am so proud to have worked with each of them, and I am confident they will continue to be a success in whatever role they take on in the future- both in their personal and professional lives. I thank them all for their service to me and all the citizens of the 9th Norfolk District.”
