I can still remember the first time I voted. I have lived in Chelsea, Massachusetts my entire life and from the moment when I could finally understand what Tim Russert was saying on Meet the Press, I eagerly awaited the day when I would become a part of the democratic process. That day came Freshman year of college. I had narrowly missed out on the heated 2008 Presidential race and I was not about to let the most important Senate race…Continue

I started working at the Scott Brown Campaign HQ on May 7th. So far I have really enjoyed my experience. I have been able to gain real hands on experience on a political campaign working closely with the staff and doing some jobs that I would not normally get do if I were in a college classroom.

Ninety-four percent of students borrow to attend college and there is more than $1 trillion in outstanding debt, making this an issue that touches all corners Massachusetts, the country as a whole, and my generation in particular. There is, however, a right and a wrong way to go about solving the current student loan…Continue
