Today I will be shadowed by my intern Kiernan, who will also be tweeting photos of his day from this account. My paid internship program is one of the best on Capitol Hill. If you are interested, apply by tomorrow, Nov. 16, HERE:…
[Kiernan] Today I’ll be shadowing Senator Leahy as part of my paid internship. I’m from beautiful @MorrisvilleVT and study political science at @AmericanU. Excited for a busy day as the Senator meets with constituents, committees, dignitaries, and advocates.
[Kiernan] Starting off the day in a @senjudiciary executive business meeting where the Senator spoke out against Trump’s installation of Whitaker as Acting AG. The Committee also reported #Vermont’s US Marshal nominee Brad LaRose for a vote on the Senate floor unanimously.
[Kiernan] Back in the office to meet with #Vermonters of the #VT chapter of the @YoungFarmers. They’re in Washington for #nyfcconvergence and are meeting w/ the Senator to discuss farming in VT and the 2018 #farmbill.
[Kiernan] Now in a meeting with @Drlobsangsangay, President of the Tibetan Government in Exile. In 2011 @DalaiLama handed over state leadership to Dr. Sangay, who has since served the Tibetan people as the highest-ranking official in their exiled government.
[Kiernan] The Senator is a longtime friend of the people of Tibet, who to this day are fighting for cultural survival & for the religious freedom supposedly guaranteed to them by the Chinese Constitution. Today they’re discussing the difficult struggle against Chinese repression.
[Kiernan] Currently sitting in on a meeting with Tierney O'Meara, President-Elect of @VAEYC which advocates for high quality early childhood education. They talked about the Senator’s efforts to boost education funding in the Appropriations Committee.
