Seeking Applicants: Student Leadership Cabinet
When I was in high school, I served on a Student Advisory Council to then-Superintendent of Public Instruction Vern Duncan. The experience taught me a great deal about public service and leadership, and it helped me understand the role I could play in making Oregon the best state it can be.
That’s why I’m excited to announce the House District 38 Student Leadership Cabinet, an opportunity for up to twelve high schoolers in our community to join my legislative team and participate in the policymaking process.
After an orientation to the legislative process, members of the Cabinet will identify their policy interests and be assigned a bill to evaluate and track within their chosen area of interest. During in-district meetings and visits to Salem, members will keep me updated on these bills, attend committee hearings, meet stakeholders and elected officials, and assist my staff with the work of operating a legislative office.
Students in grades 9-11 are invited to apply for a position on the Cabinet by emailing a resume and a brief statement of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications should be submitted by 5:00 PM on Wednesday, March 1. Questions can be directed to my Legislative Assistant, Mark Bond, at (503) 986-1438.
The young people in our community are diverse, passionate, and engaged. I look forward to working with them!
