Danny Bolam, TWC intern from Fitchburg State University, met with Rep. Peter Welch and a member of his legislative staff.  Danny spoke with Rep. Welch about various state and national issues such as Hurricane Irene, the Homestar Bill and withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.


When asked about the visit, Danny thought that “being able to speak with a representative or senator has demonstrated how easy it is to influence the government and how willing and open the official is to help when he/she can. It’s great knowing that my Congressman could make a little time for me today. Overall, I think the meeting went really well and it was a really great opportunity to meet with Congressman Welch.”

Public Policy Dialogues on Capitol Hill (PPDCH), sponsored by the Verizon Foundation, provide students with the unique opportunity to meet and interact with members of the Senate or House of Representatives representing their state or congressional district. This is one component of The Washington Center's internship program.
