Martha Revelo recently received a Bachelors in Political Science at Georgia State University and is currently pursuing her master’s degree. Her main interest in the political field include public opinion and public policy. Throughout her educational experience, she has worked on different social science research projects on policy changes. As an intern at ACCG, her objective is to gain experience in policy and legislative advocacy.

Lysette Cooksey is currently a senior at the University of Georgia, pursuing a dual AB/MPA degree, with a Bachelors in International Affairs and a Master of Public Administration. She plans to graduate in May with both degrees. A native of Marietta, she is excited to work in Atlanta with ACCG. After graduation, she hopes to move to Chicago and work in either government relations or local government.

Over the course of their internships with ACCG, Martha and Lysette will assist the policy and research departments by tracking general legislation and the introduction of local legislation, attending committee meetings, surveying counties, conducting research relative to legislative issues, and reporting on floor action for both chambers of the General Assembly. Research projects this semester include tracking TAVT losses for counties, updating sales tax statistical information, collecting data on law enforcement salaries and compensation, compiling Census data, and other special projects as assigned.
