Senator Lewis Accepting Winter Interns

Office of State Senator Jason Lewis Winter 2023 Intern Posting 

Senator Jason Lewis is seeking candidates interested in a winter internship in his State House office. State Senator Jason Lewis proudly represents the people of the Fifth Middlesex District of Massachusetts, which includes the cities and towns of Malden, Melrose, Reading, Stoneham, Wakefield, and parts of Winchester. Senator Lewis is a member of Senate President Karen Spilka’s leadership team. He serves as the Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Education and the Assistant Vice Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. He also co-founded and co-chairs the legislature’s Prevention for Health Caucus, Zero Waste Caucus, and Middlesex Fells Caucus.  He has been a leader in shaping public policy on a range of issues important to his district, region, and the state, including education, healthcare, and economic opportunity for all. 

We seek applicants interested in supporting our district-wide projects and/or assisting with the implementation of our communications strategy. 

Tasks may include: 

  • attending project briefings, 
  • researching information and statistics, 
  • creating pamphlets and charts, 
  • drafting social media posts, and 
  • event planning. 

Interns will have the opportunity to engage with all of our staff to learn about topics they find interesting, but will report mainly to our District Director and Communications Director. Although unpaid, interns will obtain meaningful experience by witnessing and participating in the day-to-day functioning of a State Senate office with a special focus on our work with the Education Committee.

Interns must have strong written and verbal communication skills and attention to detail. Candidates must also be comfortable with Microsoft Office, Google applications, and major social media platforms. Preference will be given to applicants with a high school diploma or equivalent. Applications from the Fifth Middlesex District are strongly encouraged. Hours and duration of internship are flexible, though ideal applicants will be available 8-10 hours per week. This position will be hybrid or fully remote. 

Our office does not discriminate in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, or age. Applicants of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

Candidates should send a resume and a brief letter of interest to Jason.Lewis@masenate.gov by Wednesday, January 25, 2023. References should be available upon request. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so interested parties are encouraged to apply promptly. With questions, please call (617) 722-1206. 

Senator Lewis Wants to Hear Your Feedback: Respond to Our Constituent Survey

I was thrilled to be sworn in for another term as your State Senator earlier this week. I am filled with gratitude and appreciation for the confidence that you have continued to place in me to represent you in the State Senate. I look forward to a productive legislative session working alongside my colleagues and the new Healey Administration. 

As we prepare for this new legislative session, we are setting our priorities and developing our policy agenda. To this end, we are eager to get input and feedback from our constituents on the issues that are most important to you and your families. We have created a brief survey and are trying to hear from as many people and diverse perspectives as possible from across our district (Malden, Melrose, Reading, Stoneham, Wakefield, and parts of Winchester). 

We will use your feedback to help guide our policy priorities and agenda for the new legislative session. The survey is open until Friday, January 20, and should only take about 5-10 minutes to complete. All responses will be anonymous. After it is closed, we will compile the information and host a virtual Town Hall event on Tuesday, February 7, at 6:30 pm to discuss the results.

The survey can be accessed here.

Thank you so much for your participation in our constituent survey. I am proud to serve as your State Senator and will continue to do my best to represent you and listen to your thoughts and concerns.

State Senator Jason Lewis
