My name is Carrie. I am one of two interns at Public Policy Polling this summer. I grew up in Raleigh and go N.C. State, majoring in History. I first became interested in politics in high school during the months preceding the war in Iraq. It concerned me then and has since. I am also particularly interested in environmental and sustainability issues. I have recently come across the WakeUp Wake County group and think they present a much needed message in our community.
During the 2004 political season, I volunteered with several local campaigns-Grier Martin and Erskine Bowles. I look forward to this internship giving me a look at another realm of the political world, that of public polling.
