Fund for the Public Interest

Field Manager

I was part of a team of field managers that raised over one hundred thousand dollars in the summer of 2013 for the Oregon State Public Interest Research Group. The campaigns we worked on focused on keeping the cost of health care down in Oregon as well as ending wasteful government subsidies for big agriculture companies. As a field manager I was responsible for four to six other canvassers a day. My responsibilities included training new canvassers to be effective fundraisers and working with the other field managers to create a team of core staff that would assist us in reaching our goals. Based on my good performance, I was trusted to direct a week-long campaign in Ashland, OR in August, 2013. I had a crew of experienced 7 canvassers that raised $12000 in 5 days with the average of $342 per canvasser a day.

Work for the Progress

Campaign Organizer

Worked for Colorado Fair Share campaign to reelect president Barack Obama in November 2012 and the campaign to stop the recall of two champions for the middle class, John Morse and Angela Giron in September 2013. I was directly responsible for working with a particular set of voters over the course of the campaign. I worked with a small team to map out a strategy for reaching those voters, including determining best times to identify supporters and follow up with them to make sure they vote on Election Day. Based on my particular organizing skills, I was asked to recruit volunteers, train staff of other organizations and cut turfs.
