INDIANAPOLIS – Senator Joe Donnelly announced the creation of the Wayne Townsend and Frank J. Anderson Legislative Programs on Thursday.
The programs are designed to provide individuals interested in public service with the opportunity to serve in Donnelly’s Washington, D.C. office and work with his legislative staff.
The Wayne Townsend Legislative Program provides an individual interested in public service the opportunity to serve in Donnelly’s Washington, D.C. office, while the Frank J. Anderson Military Legislative Program provides the same opportunity to someone who is interested in military and defense issues, as well as a career in public service.
“I named these programs after two outstanding Hoosiers,” Donnelly said in a press release.
Townsend is a Hartford City native, farmer, and Democratic gubernatorial nominee, and served Indiana for 23 years in the Statehouse. Anderson, a native of Indianapolis, is a veteran who gave more than 50 years to public service including roles as U.S. Marshal and Marion County sheriff.
“These two men represent the best of the Hoosier willingness to serve our neighbors and work toward the betterment of our local communities, state, and nation,” Donnelly said.
