Dear Ms. Cook,
Matthew Perkins, with whom I have been working for the last several years as a legislative assistant, suggested that I contact you. As you undoubtedly know, Mr. Perkins is retiring at the end of this term. He said that he thought you were looking for a legislative assistant. I am therefore enclosing my resume and a letter of reference from Mr. Perkins for your review.
My active participation in politics dates back to my college years when I was a volunteer campaign worker while earning my B.A. in Political Science and serving as a research assistant in the field. More recently, during my work with Mr. Perkins, he has consistently increased my level of responsibility. As his letter indicates, he has been very pleased with the quality of my work and with my professional ethics. Additionally, to be as effective as possible in my assistant role, I take law courses on a regular basis.
With these qualifications and the fact that my political beliefs are very consistent with yours, I know I can make a valuable contribution to your staff. Naturally, I am comfortable changing my primary residence to the Washington, D.C. area.
I would value the opportunity to talk or meet with you in the near future. Thanks for your consideration of my application.
