Christian Sarnie, of Braintree, recently completed an internship in the office of state Senator John F. Keenan.
“Chris has been a pleasure to work with,” said Sen. Keenan (D-Quincy), co-chairman of the Joint Committee on Public Health. “He is intelligent, inquisitive, and reliable in his strong work ethic.”
During his internship, Sarnie conducted policy research, helped record and respond to correspondence from constituents and advocacy groups, and tracked legislation sponsored or cosponsored by the Senator.
Sarnie, a graduate of Braintree High School, is now a sophomore at Bentley University majoring in accounting. He is actively involved in his school community, participating in the Certified Bentley Leader Program, the Executive Board for the Law Club, and intramural soccer and basketball.
Sarnie said an internship in the Senate was an opportunity to volunteer his time towards public service. The internship also allowed him to learn about and support the legislative process.
“Chris will be missed here,” said Keenan, “but I am encouraged by his will to succeed and to contribute to his community. I was glad to have him, and wish him well in future endeavors.”
