Campaign Internship and Volunteer Opportunities

As the South Sound representative for Congressman Adam Smith's (WA-09) reelection campaign, I would like to pass along the following information regarding internship and volunteer opportunities with Congressman Smith's reelection campaign.

The campaign is looking for responsible, hardworking, energetic and dedicated individuals who will help reelect Congressman Smith. With a strong focus on personal contact with constituents, communication skills are tremendously important. Interns and volunteers will be working with and supporting campaign staff by doorbelling, phone banking, assisting at events, and, at times, will support local candidates and their elections efforts. With flexible hours, this opportunity is great for the schedules of University students such as yourselves.

In addition to working with Congressman Smith's reelection campaign, there are two opportunities on September 22nd to get a feel for campaigning. The first is doorbelling for Jason Ritchie at Mirrormont Park in Southern Issaquah from about 3:30pm-5:-pm (Ritchie is running for the 8th Congressional House seat).  The second is in Auburn at 130 E Main St, where volunteers will be phone banking for Chris Barringer from 6-8pm (Chris is running for the 47th LD State House position).

If you have any interest in getting involved in anyway, please do not hesitate to contact Lucas Henken at
