Dem Summers: Jonathan Padilla’s jobs are cooler than yours.

The Dems have been busy over the summer: interning, working, volunteering, traveling, and of course, indulging in some leisure time not oft found in Cambridge (leave it to a Harvard student to be busy spending leisure time.) This is part II of an indefinite series. If you’re a Harvard Dem (or rising pre-frosh with interest), we’d love to hear what you’ve been up to. | E-mail communications@harvarddems.com.
 
I’ve been working at Google on green energy advocacy since June.
 
I was just elected Treasurer of the Young Democrats of America in Louisville, KY. It makes me the youngest board member in the 79 year old history of YDA and the only time in history where two Latinos concurrently serve on the Board of Directors.
 
Other than that I’ve been studying for the LSAT and doing thesis research on how California’s governors use statewide referenda to set public agenda.
