My name is Austin Cooney-Foubert. I am running to become a delegate for Democrats Abroad because I would like to be part of the change that America so desperately needs. I’m running for this position because now more than ever, we need members who are willing to actively engage in building our party in this critical election year and beyond. Born to a French mother and an Irish/American father, I’ve lived with and enjoyed the challenges of an international perspective all my life. After graduating high school south of Boston, MA, I attended school in France. One of the main reasons was the comparative cost for education. I was elected president of the freshman class and soon thereafter elected president of the ISLR and ERASMUS student associations. My abilities to connect, drive, empathize, and communicate with people, have always been a strength of mine. I respectfully ask for your support.
