Hi, my name is Drake Yeiter and am proud to present myself as a summer intern for the Howard County Democratic Party. This summer will be a journey and hope that you will be there with me along the way. I am a college student at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana studying Political Science and Spanish. I have always been interested in politics and am beyond excited to experience how local politics works with the Democratic Party and help Mayor Goodnight continue building a better Kokomo. Living in Kokomo the majority of my life, it has been exciting to see the progress of Kokomo under mayor Goodnight. A piece of advice before I left for college that always resonates with me today is “make sure to get outside of yourself” and I believe that this internship is not only providing me practical experience but also providing me the opportunity to be part of something greater than myself by being part of a team and a party that believes in Kokomo.
