The Whirlwind

Posted on Thursday, Feb 28, 2019

First month of work at the Texas capitol- done!  I have been loving my time as a legislative aide with Representative James Frank.  It's been four weeks of learning as I go, and I learned that its completely true what they say- working here is like drinking out of a fire hose! So much information is flying at you each and everyday, constituents and lobbyists are at the door to express their views, and House committee are finally beginning to meet- this all sums up to one of the best learning opportunities of my life, truly.  I have already grown so much and I am excited to continue through this session and follow bills to the floor!  So far, I have had a blast experiencing the events hosted by various organizations, like the Legislative flag football game on Kyle Field, and meeting with Lt. Governor Patrick! I'm looking forward to all the fun ahead!
