Haggerty Announces First State House Intern Selections of 2021

Emily O’Brien from Woburn.

Representative Richard M. Haggerty is proud to announce three individuals that were recently selected to serve as legislative interns to begin the 2021 legislative session. The intern class includes Emily O’Brien from Woburn, Kyle Donohue from Reading, and Gabe Cronin-Golomb from Reading.

Emily O’Brien is a freshman at American University, where she is studying International Relations and Spanish. Diplomacy, immigration, and humanitarian issues are of great interest to her, with some of her other hobbies including reading, running, and spending time with friends and family. From this internship, Emily is hoping to gain a better understanding of the policy making process within our government.

Kyle Donohue from Reading.


Kyle recently graduated from Boston College with a major in English major while minoring in Economics and History. Some of his personal interests include comedy, improv, running, and reading to name a few. Kyle is a self-described “political junkie” who enjoys watching election coverage, and with the internship wanted to learn more about the inner workings of his state government and how it affects both policy and residents closer to home.


Gabe is currently a junior at Boston University where he is majoring in Political Science. Hiking, meeting new people, and generally trying new things are some of his many hobbies, along with his deep interest in government. Gabe is a big supporter of education reform in the United States, where he believes with enough public support and investment our nation can solve any problem that comes our way. During this internship opportunity he believes constituent outreach is very important and has been helping our office improve the lives of our constituents.

Gabe Cronin-Golomb from Reading.

“It was great having Emily, Kyle, and Gabe join our State House team this winter,” said Rep. Haggerty. “They each brought with them their own unique strengths and insight that was immensely helpful these last couple months as we continue to serve our constituents. It was a pleasure getting to know the each of them, and I wish them all the best in their future endeavors.”

The three are set to finish their 8-week Winter Internship with Rep. Haggerty’s office. The Representative’s office will be continuing the internship program through 2021 and application packages for potential interns from Woburn or Reading are reviewed on a rolling basis.
