This summer Brothers John Burke and David Eckelmann both have internships with members of New Jersey’s congressional delegation. Brother Eckelmann is currently working for Congressman Rush Holt, a Democrat representing New Jersey’s 12th district. Meanwhile, Brother Burke is interning for Congressman Scott Garrett, a Republican representing New Jersey’s 5th district.
Both John and Dave are interning in their Congressman’s respective district offices, as opposed to their Washington D.C. offices. As such, their jobs entail a great deal of constituent services and community outreach.
The summer months of 2012 have been politically tumultuous thus far, to say the least. With the campaign heating up and recent Supreme Court decisions, John and Dave have received intimate insight into the responsibilities of members of the United States House of Representatives.
