 Asher Lehrer-Small - Jericho, Vermont    "Interning with Christine's campaign has been a great intro to political action. I'm part of a tight-knit team that empowers my voice and I gain new skills every day. It's hard work, but it's so worth it. Plus it doesn't hurt that we're going to make history!"
