Ben has had an interest in government relations for as long as he can remember. As a kid growing up in Danbury, Connecticut, he was deeply interested in his community and his local municipality.

Just last summer Ben acted as an intern for Mayor Mark Boughton of Danbury, Connecticut, his hometown. During this time Ben played a vital role in the office’s organization and project implementation. He provided written communication on behalf of the office, and worked on various long term projects.

Ben is currently a Senior Political Science Major at the University of Delaware. He has gained some valuable experience with politicos around Delaware, and has now been given the opportunity to engage as an Intern with Ruggerio Willson & Associates, where he assists the team with their work in government relations.

When not at work or school Ben can be found in Connecticut visiting his family, or in Delaware hanging with his friends. He prefers to spend his Winters on the slopes in Vermont and his Summers fishing in Delaware and vacationing in Long Beach Township, NJ.
