DAG DPCA Voting Representative Candidate
I started working with DA as part of Americans Overseas for Kerry in Munich in 2004, and after working on the Obama campaign in Germany, I was elected Munich Chapter Chair in 2009. As chair I organized the first annual Oktoberfest FUNdraiser, and before the 2010 midterms, I coordinated the production of our first professional DA brochure, as well as a postal mailing to all DAG members.
From 2011 to 2017, I served as either DAG Chair or Vice Chair. In my first year as DAG Vice Chair, I founded the EMEA COOP, a cooperative to provide country committees and Germany's chapters with high-quality postcards, brochures, buttons, t-shirts, etc – a project which still exists to this day... in my cellar! Visit our GermanyShop today! I also founded the Global Design Team two years ago and remain one of its co-chairs.
I was instrumental in planning – and driving – the Democrats Abroad Road Trip (DART) around Europe in the summer of 2012, visiting 26 cities in 13 different countries, motivating local committees and chapters and registering as many American citizens as we could find.
Having served as one of your DPCA Voting Reps, I’ve tried to represent our country committee well to the global body. It took three years to pass, but I was the driving force behind “one-person-one-vote” – the reason DAG has so many voting reps today.
I’ve attended Global Meetings in Florence, Seoul, Washington, Puerto Vallarta, London, Punta Cana, Berlin and Tokyo and EMEA Regional Meetings in Berlin, Strasbourg, Edinburgh and Kiev. I know the DPCA, have a good rapport with our DNC members and other leaders worldwide. Should you elect me to this position again, I promise to continue working hard for you. I ask for your support – and your vote.
