Summer Intern Quotes:

Interning with the Santa Clara County Republican office was a really eye-opening experience for me. I got to see first hand how a political office really runs, as well as actively participate in promoting the Republican Party. Work was always really fun to do, and it was tremendously rewarding to see the work that I had done actually yield an immediate result. It was a great way to meet friends and influence people, I would recommend it to any politically-active Republican who wants to get involved!

“Working for the County Republican Party has exposed me to an aspect of the political process that I knew little about in the past. At the grassroots level, pretty much all of the work done in a political office feels like it’s making a difference. It was exciting to work in politics at a time when there is so much happening. With education at the forefront of the Governor’s campaign for reform in CA, I know I’ve made a contribution to reforming something that directly affects me as a high school student. I thank the County Republican Party for imparting me with a more realistic view of political involvement, and giving me the chance to contribute to something that I believe in.

“When school ended in June, I was looking for a productive way to spend my summer. I found just that when I applied for an internship with the Santa Clara County Republican Party. My work at the Republican headquarters proved interesting and instructive. The most rewarding project I worked on was assisting Vice-Mayor Charles Marsala with his annual Republican gathering of over 250 people. The other 3 interns and I worked for nearly seven hours preparing the event and we got to meet many high-profile politicians. I thoroughly enjoyed working for the Santa Clara County Republican Party because of all the opportunities available to learn and experience politics first hand.”

“Interning for the Santa Clara County Republican Party has been a life impacting experience. From research projects to updating the always expanding voter database, I can truly say this has been the most productive summer of my life. These projects have not only allowed me to contribute to a party that I support, but it has also been a very rewarding personal experience. This internship has also allowed me to meet many unique and friendly people, all of whom have impacted me positively. Years into the future, when I look back at my 2005 summer, the time I spent at the Republican Headquarters will undoubtedly stand out.”
