Mike Nichols for Boston City Council District 8 Internship

Posted October 01, 2013 Employer: Michael Nichols
Approximate Deadline: November 5th, 2013

Michael Nichols’ campaign is looking for civic-minded students who would like to gain political experience by volunteering or interning with the campaign. The work will involve social media, event planning, and voter outreach throughout District 8, which includes Mission Hill, Fenway, Kenmore, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, and the West End.

Nichols’ campaign has stood out thanks to substantive conversations about the issues that matter most to District 8 voters, including college students.
