Another internship opporunity for the City Council race

Dear Prof. O'Neil,

My name is Olgy and I worked with Hart Edmonson last fall in the Tacoma democratic headquarters. I understand you have a very prominent blog at UPS and I would really appreciate your assistance in recruiting a intern by posting the below announcement. I'm running a Tacoma City Council race and this would be a great opportunity for students gain campaign experience by working in a tight knit local race directly with the candidate, myself (an Obama organizer here in Pierce County last fall), and our consultant (one of Obama's original Iowa Caucus organizers).

Thank you,
Olgy Diaz
