When Michael Guastella was selected to participate in Kent State University’s Columbus Program in Intergovernmental Issues, he was excited and honored to be a part of the exclusive internship program.  He never expected that the experience he gained would lead to a full-time position as a constituent aide in Ohio Governor John Kasich’s office less than a year later. 

Guastella, a Solon, Ohio native, interned for a law firm and worked on Kasich’s successful re-election campaign in the fall of 2014 while he was in the Columbus program.
