Bachelor of Arts (AB) in Political Science

Mr. Roberts serves as the Senior Legislative Assistant to Florida Senator Tom Lee. When the Florida Legislature is in session, he is responsible for managing the legislative agenda for Senator Lee. Specifically, Doug drafts and files legislation, works with government agencies and lobbyists on public policy initiatives, and presents legislation before committees on behalf of Senator Lee during Senate committee meetings. Doug spends about half the year working in Tallahassee, but when the legislature is not in session, he works for the Senator in the district. In that capacity, Doug is responsible for preparing for the next session, conducting community outreach, and working campaigns during election years.
