Internship Opportunity

City Councilwoman Jessica Lappin is running for Manhattan Borough President in 2013, and looking for motivated interns to assist her campaign over the summer. She was born and raised in Manhattan, and quickly became one of the Democratic Party’s rising stars. She won election to the City Council in 2005 representing the Upper East Side and Roosevelt Island, and is currently finishing
out her second term.

Councilwoman Lappin has become part of a new generation of leadership in New York City, and continues to lead on a number of progressive issues. Some of her accomplishments include:

• Playing a key role in bringing the Cornell-Technion Campus to Roosevelt Island, which is
projected to create 30,000 new jobs and 600 spin-off companies
• Writing landmark legislation to project women’s health and the right to choose, for which she
was praised by Planned Parenthood and the New York Times
• Personally overseeing the approval of over 20,000 public school seats across the city and 5 new
schools in her district
• Authoring bills to address traffic and construction safety
• Passing recycling laws, encouraging sensible development, and leading the fight to create a
greener New York
• Opening up previously inaccessible waterfront to the public along the East River
The Job
Interning on a campaign is a fun and rewarding commitment. It’s an excellent way of learning about
the political process and the city, and it’s a great way to meet other students. This will be a fantastic
opportunity for bright young adults to interact with their communities and build unparalleled
professional experience for future positions. Interns are vital to the success of the campaign.

Responsibilities will include: phoning registered voters about her platform, office mailings and clerical duties,
street campaigning and canvassing, talking to voters face to face, and attending campaign press conferences,
events and rallies.

The internship is unpaid. However, we are happy to offer credit with respective schools for
hours/days worked.

Undergrads willing to dedicate 4-6 days per week during summer are highly desired. Interested
candidates should include a CV as well as their available start date. Inquiries should be directed to
