Assemblymember O’Donnell Calls for Applications for Prestigious Capital State Fellowships

For immediate release:

(LONG BEACH) – Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell (D-Long Beach) encourages political and public policy enthusiasts to apply for the prestigious Capital Fellows Programs. The Jesse Marvin Unruh Assembly Fellowship, the California Senate Fellows, the Executive Fellowship and the Judicial Administration Fellowship all have application deadlines of February 8, 2016.

“The fellowship program is a unique opportunity to dive into the fascinating world of the California Legislature,” said Assemblymember O’Donnell, who is an alumnus of the Assembly Fellowship program.  “One of the most amazing aspects of the fellowship is the diverse field of candidates it attracts. Take me for example, as a school teacher I applied and was accepted into the program.  As a fellow, I saw firsthand how the policy that shapes the classroom was crafted, debated, and established.”

The ranks of former fellows include a justice of the California Supreme Court, members of the United States Congress and the California State Legislature, a deputy director of the PeaceCorps, corporate executives and attorneys, a director of a well-respected non-profit advocacy organization and local government and community leaders.

For more information on how to apply or other assistance, please contact Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell’s District Office at 562-429-0470.

Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell represents the 70th Assembly District which includes Long Beach, Signal Hill, San Pedro and Catalina Island.
