Student interns perform a very valuable service in my State House office and are utilized in a productive manner.   Executive Council District One is extremely large and requires a great deal of travel and time to adequately serve the requests and needs of local towns, agencies, and citizens in general.

REQUIREMENTS:
Student Interns are required to earn academic credit for this experience with Councilor Burton.  The number of credits is usually determined by the amount of time involved.

Student Interns carry out a variety of tasks in and out of the office including, but not limited to: 
•  follow up on requests from citizens
•  assist a state agency with a special problem
•  arrange a day's schedule of office hours, visitations, briefings, etc., for Councilor Burton
•  prepare, mail and tabulate surveys of various groups such as town clerks, police and fire chiefs and chambers' of commerce
•  research specialized areas such as acid rain, rural airports, or financial resources for senior citizen centers and service providers
•  write news releases on specific topics of interest for District One
•  represent Councilor Burton at legislative hearings or other meetings in Concord, NH or throughout the District
