Internship field report: Nick Pfost @ EqualityMaine

June 3, 2014

Second year Ford School students are engaged in public policy internships all around the world this summer, and we're hoping they'll check in to share news from the field.

Second year MPPer Nick Pfost shares news from Portland, Maine, where he's serving as legislative and public policy graduate intern at EqualityMaine. In his guest blog post for EqualityMaine, Pfost describes himself as "the nerdy high school student who watched CSPAN after classes while eating my macaroni and cheese." He'll spend the summer working on a variety of EqualityMaine legislative priorities, including LGBT-inclusive anti-bullying legislation.

"After only a week, I have already traveled to our office in Brewer, toured Bangor, enjoyed a giant bowl of nachos with EqualityMaine's legislative and legal counsel at the Great Lost Bear, run along the Atlantic on Portland's Eastern Promenade Trail, and devoured plates of delicious homemade food at a Memorial Day weekend BBQ in Kennebunkport," reports Pfost.

This internship was supported by the Neil Staebler Political Education Fund.
