Howdy! My name is Kasey Lettunich and I am an Aggie working up on the hill in Washington, D.C. I work for the office of the Honorable John “Judge” Carter from the 31st District in Texas.
Judge’s district ranges all the way from Stephenville to Round Rock and parts of Austin. After three weeks of living in D.C., I have decided that I get along with the East Coast. I love the people that I work with and I get along with the fellow interns. During my first week on the job, Judge hosted a “Texas Two Step” reception to help get support for his re-election. I was also able to go to a briefing dealing with Agriculture, and I got to tour around the Capitol.
The next week I went to tour training, and I am proud to say that I am an awesome tour guide now. Maggie, another Aggie in the office, gave the other interns and me a tour of the House floor and then we went to the Speaker’s Balcony…it was beautiful. Below is a picture of Allison (middle), McKenzie (right), and myself hanging out on the balcony. Allison is a sophomore at the University of Arizona and McKenzie is a junior at Texas Tech University…I won’t hold that against her.
Needless to say, my D.C. adventure is going really great so far! Keep posted for more posts from me!
