Adam is a young, forward-thinking, pragmatic progressive who believes in the power of collaboration in government and politics.

The campaign is interested in hiring several students to assist with organizing efforts on campus and in neighborhoods surrounding campus. Those selected will work to organize students to become educated about the upcoming election and participate through volunteering and voting. An important focus of the campaign effort is to include more students and young people in the discussion and the democratic process.

Successful applicants will be energetic, outgoing, and willing to engage with their networks around local political issues and the importance of voting.
