U.S. Sen. Mark Begich announced he is welcoming a group of spring interns to his offices in Washington, D.C., Anchorage, Juneau and Fairbanks. Nine Alaskans started their internships this week and will work in Sen. Begich’s offices until May.
“This is another distinguished class of young Alaskans who will proudly serve our state by helping Alaskans and learning about the legislative process,” Begich said. “My staff and I enjoy working with and getting to know each of the young Alaskans we host, and this class of interns is already working and making a difference in our offices.”
Elizabeth Slotnick will work in Begich’s Juneau office. Slotnick was born in Fairbanks but grew up in Juneau were she graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School in 2003. She graduated from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 2007 with a degree in Political Science and minor in Religious Studies.
Slotnick will work in a variety of areas supporting the Begich staff including researching Alaska issues, working with legislative staff on congressional issues, helping with constituent cases and inquiries and giving Capitol tours to visiting Alaskans.
