    Paris Outreach Candidate Didier Moutou

    My name is Didier David Moutou, and I am running for DAF Paris Chapter Outreach Manager. 

    I hail from "bean town", aka Boston, but I have been working in the Paris area for the past 12 years. On a personal level I am married with two awesome kids, and am an information technology professional during the day, and an audio mastering engineer at night.

    One of our key duties as citizens is to ensure that we have a functioning and lasting democracy where all votes are counted and the voices of the weakest are heard as loud as those of the strongest.

    As an IT director I have helped many organizations and companies improve their outreach to their customers or audience through the efficient use of digital tools. 

    I am running for the Chapter outreach manager with the simple but clear goal of improving the voter registration and voter turnout of Americans living in the Paris/Ile de France region.
