Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato announced today her NYS Assembly Session Intern, Michael Matteo, who will be working out of her Albany Legislative Office for the 2018 Session.
Matteo, a Staten Island native, and senior at Baruch College majoring in Public Affairs with a minor in Law & Public Policy, started the Assembly Internship program with previous legislative experience. Matteo has aspirations to attend law school in the near future, and has an interest in sports and gambling law.
Formerly, Matteo, was an intern for Councilman Donovan Richards in his Manhattan Legislative Office. Matteo has gained an impressive amount of aptitude and facility with the legislative process through his experience interning in the city council and currently is helping with bill research, drafting of memos and even coordinating Albany scheduling within the Assemblywoman’s Office.
“Michael knows all about living in an area that is tolled heavily and is still recovering from Hurricane Sandy- so it’s a perfect fit!” said Pheffer Amato. “”The Assembly Internship program is amazing and teaches our students such valuable life lessons. Michael jumped right in, and has made my second legislative session more navigable and more powerful-I cannot wait to see him succeed in all of his future endeavors.”
