Internship with James Langevin widens eyes of local teens

August 14, 2014

WARWICK — Answering phone call after phone call from constituents on a regular basis regarding social and economic issues, rubbing elbows and sharing discussions with Rhode Island’s government elite and understanding and implementing policies in order to better the state as a whole are things that are all in a days’ work for Congressman James Langevin.
And two local teens are experiencing what life is really like with the United States government.
While most teenagers spend the better portions of their summers enjoying the weather or going away on vacations, East Greenwich residents Andrew Miner and Caroline Preston have worked the last couple of months behind the scenes in the day-to-day operations of aiding the District 2 representative of the United States Congress at the constituent services office on Centerville Road.
Donning formal sport coats and attire, Miner and Preston spend the majority of their time in the office doing many tasks that are asked of by Langevin and his staff, such as fielding many calls from residents, sending out emails to constituents, keeping up with the daily blogs and communications in order to keep the public informed as to what is new with Langevin and going out to special events and visits around the state that few teenagers have an opportunity to take part in.
