    DA Heidelberg Vice Chair Candidate Statement

    My name is Daniel Hoever-Eckardt. I’m 33 years old and I was born in Germany to a European mother and an American father. I’ve been a member of the DAHD chapter since 2016. Since the beginning of last year I’m a precinct captain for our newly developed Mannheim group.

    With the Mannheim group we are having quarterly meetings and organized a GOTV table in front of the Mannheim Stadthaus and marched in the CSD Parade in Mannheim.

    I also was actively helping at many of the chapter’s political and non-political events, like the Independence Day BBQ, Women’s March, Heidelberg Science March and others.

    At Democrats Abroad Germany’s fall retreat I committed myself to actively support the Heidelberg Chapter Chair. By combining the role of Precinct Captain and Vice Chair I believe we can benefit from synergy effects

    Therefore, I would like to ask for the honor of serving as your chapter vice chairperson.
