Dr. Juliet Gainsborough, an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Bentley College, is hosting a group of 20 European college students as part of a State Department program to introduce them to the United States. On Thursday, July 24 Representative Garballey welcomed Dr. Gainsborough and her students to the State House, to Massachusetts, and to the United States.

 

Dr. Gainsborough is conducting a seminar with her students on American politics, with a particular focus on the importance of state government. Their seminar included a tour of the State House and a Q & A with Rep Garballey. She said “The students really enjoyed their visit to the statehouse and being able to meet a Representative. They were particularly impressed that he was close to their own age and so willing to answer questions.”
