The Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service welcomed five new fellows to campus for the spring of 2019, including two political advisors, a journalist, a former congresswoman and a political strategist.

The fellows include Dan Sena, former executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign; Antonia Ferrier, a partner at a Republican consulting firm; Paulette Aniskoff, the former director of former President Barack Obama’s office of public engagement; Jonathan Capehart, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post opinion writer; and former Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R–Fla.), the first Latina to serve in Congress.

Spring 2019 is the eighth semester for which GU Politics has selected fellows to engage with students on campus through weekly, not-for-credit discussion groups on current issues in politics ranging from the Democrats winning the majority in the U.S. House of Representative in 2018 to the nuances of political advocacy through media. The fellows discussed their desire to hear student perspectives in their politics, public service and journalism seminars this semester in a Jan. 18 interview with The Hoya.
