U.S Rep Pete Visclosky, D-1st, is announcing the promotion of several members of his Washington, D.C., office with ties to Northwest Indiana.

Megan Adamczewski from Chesterton was recently promoted to Legislative Director, responsible for leading Visclosky’s legislative priorities and monitoring House floor activities. “I studied Government in college and was fortunate to be able to serve as an intern in the First District’s D.C. office,” Adamczewski said in a statement released on Monday. “I’m grateful to be able to continue using my skill set and knowledge of Northwest Indiana to provide services to our corner of Indiana.”

Sonja Schaefer, a Valparaiso native, began as an intern in the D.C. office and is currently transitioning from Staff Assistant to a Legislative Correspondent position. “From Washington State to Washington, D.C., I enjoy being able to support Congressman Visclosky and promote my home area that has a huge sandy beach in one direction and cornfields in the other,” Schaefer said.

Michael Peterson, a Highland native and Valparaiso University graduate, has served as an intern in both the Merrillville and Washington offices and recently transitioned to a Legislative Correspondent position.“I am proud to be able to work to help provide the residents of Northwest Indiana, as well as all Americans, with chances to succeed and grow regardless of their background or zip code,” Peterson said.

Sameer Chintamani from Munster is currently an intern in the Congressman’s Washington office and will assume a full-time Staff Assistant position this month upon his graduation from American University. “Northwest Indiana has provided me such a great educational foundation and community growing up.Ê I will try my best to ensure that similar opportunities are made possible for everyone in Northwest Indiana through the work and initiatives of Congressman Visclosky,” Chintamani said.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have such dedicated staff that brings a wealth of perspectives and knowledge of Northwest Indiana to Washington, D.C., Visclosky said.
