My name is Nicholas Sones, I am currently a student. My major is political science. My interest in politics began in either the 9th or 10th grade. I had a teacher, who like all teachers inspired me, we would debate in her classes, and discuss issues that were facing this nation. I guess the reason that I am interested in politics still is because I like most Americans understand that it all begins with a good education, and behind that education is a public school teacher. I’ve volunteered for many candidates including Joe Sestak (my first campaign), recently I served as the field director for John Hanger, and then when he dropped out, I went on to serve as field director for Tom Wolf!
I chose to write for the PA Progressive, because writing about politics is somewhat of a hobby and I hope to one day turn it into a career!
