John Madigan is a senior at Union College, pursuing a double major in Economics and Political Science. He works in the Executive Office at the White Plains Office.
I am currently interning for the Executive Office, in the Public and Regulatory Affairs division, under Sylvia Louie and Jill Anderson. My responsibilities include authoring executive briefings, policy memos, and presentations. These assignments usually pertain to energy, environmental, or economic policy. Joe Leary and Ed Birdie have made my experience here at NYPA special, for they remind me daily that I am not “just” an intern.
I am looking forward to a career in city planning or urban (re)development, employing the energy sector knowledge that I have gained from NYPA.
Personally, I am a car geek, a bookworm, and a wannabe rock star. I drive a 1973 MGB Roadster, which I have been restoring over the past five years. I will read most anything, although I prefer historical fiction or the Economist magazine. When not wrenching or reading, I enjoy playing my guitar, an Ibanez AF-55 full hollow body. I also have a beagle Jackson, adopted from Tennessee, and named after the seventh President of the United States.
