Bassler: Bloomington resident gains experience at Indiana Statehouse 3.17.2021

Erin Siegel is serving as an intern for the Indiana Senate Majority Caucus during the 2021 legislative session, said State Sen. Eric Bassler (R-Washington).

Siegel, a resident of Bloomington, is the daughter of Jeff and Barbara Zaremsky. She graduated from Rolla High School in Rolla, Missouri, and is a graduate of Kansas State University, where she earned a bachelor's degree in biochemistry.

“Erin is a strong writer, and her dedication and hard work in the communications office has been an asset to the Senate this year,” Bassler said. “It is always great to see young adults from southern Indiana participate in the Senate Internship Program. Erin has a bright future ahead of her and I wish her all the best with her future endeavors.”

As a press secretary intern, Siegel writes news releases, columns and e-newsletters, and helps correspond with members of the media.

"Having spent years campaigning for individuals on the local, state and national levels, I am thankful that God blessed me with this incredible opportunity to learn more about how state government works and what these individuals actually do once they are in office," Siegel said. “It is one thing to hear promises on the campaign trail, but now I have gotten to see firsthand how hard and passionately these public servants work to try to fulfill those promises and productively pass legislation to benefit those they serve.”

Senate Majority interns work through the duration of the legislative session, which is scheduled to end by April 29.
