We are the team responsible for contacting thousands of voters in Washington’s 7th Congressional District daily. So, if you’ve received any phone calls or lit – it’s from us! Our experiences working with Andrew Hughes have prompted the creation of this blog; we hope you enjoy our stories as much as we’ve enjoyed our time with Andrew.
Daniel: I joined the team because of a strong interest in politics and a desire to be a part a campaign for someone with the same views that I have. I’m not sure what exactly my future career goals are, but I hope to continue to work campaigns for individuals I support and agree with.
Gabe: I wanted to be a part of the Andrew Hughes Campaign because it was a great opportunity. I have been involved with politics since I was 17 and hope to continue my education by earning my Master’s in Urban Planning. I want to change lives and break political barriers.
Philip: I joined the team because I’ve always loved politics. Those who show up get to decide, and I’ve always wanted to be a part of that process. In the future I would like to get involved in public policy making to create a better and more responsive government.
Tina: I joined up with Andrew’s team of young advocates because I wanted to put the skills I gained working at the Washington Bus to good use. I love the excitement and unpredictability of this type of work, and I love going home at the end of the day feeling like I made an impact.
Robbie: I joined the team because it gives me an opportunity to enhance my political knowledge, especially since I have an engineering background. The people I’ve interacted with have taught me something new every day. In the future, I would like to work for an engineering firm doing something in the field of nanotechnology.
Morgan: I joined the team because I’ve always been interested in the behind the scenes aspect of politics. This seemed like a great opportunity to learn the ropes and really make a difference. I am always learning something new and truly enjoy the people I work with and all the members of the community that I’ve met. My aspiration is to attend law school after I graduate from UW next year and practice International and Human Rights Law.
Holly: I was incredibly excited to join the Andrew Hughes team; I have always enjoyed politics, and the opportunity to engage and empower voters is one I couldn’t resist. After interning with Secretary of State Sam Reed, I knew that blending my passions of journalism and politics was something I had to pursue. I very much enjoy everyone I work with, and couldn’t have asked for a better candidate to advocate for.
Will: Coming from the swampy lands of Florida, working for Andrew Hughes has been a great experience and has helped me to discover the beauty of Seattle. In addition to getting involved with politics and meeting awesome people, the ability to make a difference in a new city is what makes this job so worthwhile – especially when it’s for a great guy like Andrew.
