Our Research Department Hosts a Terrific Extern
The State and Federal Communications Research Department had the privilege of hosting Latoya Peterson, an extern from the University of Akron School of Law, this semester. We challenged her with a variety of projects, but most of her focus was on helping us identify and summarize legislation affecting the areas of lobbying laws, campaign finance, and procurement lobbying. The beginning of the year in particular has an especially large volume of bills and Latoya assisted the department’s research associates with the workload.
Latoya had worked in the Ohio General Assembly and already had a background in government affairs, so she had no problem picking up what kinds of bills we wanted to track. She was also able to quickly learn the fine details of working in our database and then she was off and running!
It was a pleasure to have Latoya work with us over the past few months. Hopefully we’ll be blessed with her positive energy again.
