Intern Spotlight – Cameron Ring

This winter U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) welcomed Mr. Cameron Ring onto his staff.  The 25 year-old California native now lives in Alexandria, Virginia, and began his internship in the Washington, D.C., office in December.

Cameron is one of three interns currently working in Denham’s D.C. office.  He assists with a variety of duties, including drafting briefing summaries for staff, assisting with constituent correspondence and conducting tours of the U.S. Capitol for visiting constituents.  In addition to his office responsibilities, Cameron is most interested in learning about judicial issues on the Hill and federal policy affecting our nation’s veterans. 

“It’s always an honor to welcome such hardworking young men and women to my staff for the unique opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge of the federal legislative process,” said Rep. Denham.  “Cameron’s unwavering commitment to serving our country through his work on Capitol Hill and in his military service is inspiring.  It’s been an honor getting to know him during his time in my office.”

“I wanted to work for Congressman Denham mainly because he is a veteran,” said Ring. “Not only has he served our county overseas, but he strongly advocates for veterans issues.  When I become a veteran, I hope that there will continue to be congressmen like him to advocate on our behalf.”

Mr. Ring is a graduate of Longwood University, where he majored in Political Science and Liberal Studies.  In addition to the time he spends interning in Congressman Denham’s office, Cameron maintains a separate job in Virginia and also serves in Virginia’s National Guard.  Cameron’s unit had the distinct pleasure and privilege of being called to duty during the Presidential Inauguration this past January.  Moving forward, Ring hopes to one day become a political consultant; but he remains open to any opportunities that come his way.

Cameron is the son of Debby and Jesse Ring.
