Rising Brown University freshman Evan Pittman this week completed his summer internship in the Phoenix office of U.S. Senator Jeff Flake.  Pittman dealt with constituent calls during a particularly challenging period, when issues included a gunman attack on Republican members of Congress during a softball practice, and contentious debate in the Senate vote on healthcare.

On his last day in the office, Pittman brought a copy of Flake’s recently-released book, “Conscience of a Conservative,” for the Senator to autograph.
