The CEC is delighted to welcome Kelly Clifford as our Government Relations intern for the summer. Kelly will be reporting on the environmental policies of the Houston City Council, the Railroad Commission of Texas, and the 85th Texas Legislature.
Kelly is a rising senior at New York University majoring in Political Science and minoring in History and Sociology. She interns part-time with Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s Houston District Office and hopes to attend law school after graduating. In the future, she would like to aid in the development of progressive legislation – environmental and otherwise.
At NYU, Kelly is a member of the NYU Politics Society and NYU College Democrats. She spent much of the Spring 2016 semester canvassing for Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign and interned for the Texas Democratic Party last summer. She looks forward to graduating a semester early this fall.
Kelly welcomes introductions from anyone interested in environmental law and legislation.
