In 2004 I was Berks County Field manager for Lois Herr for Congress and also on the state glbt steering committee for PA Victory 04. In 2004 I began working for Chuck Pennacchio and in spring 2005 became his Interim Campaign Coordinator. Chuck ran for the U.S. Senate in this spring's Democratic primary for Senator Santorum's seat.
I'm a Deaniac and worked as a volunteer on his campaign in 2003 and 2004 organizing Berks County.
I sit on the Boards of Planned Parenthood Advocates of North East Pennsylvania and Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates.
I am also doing local consulting for Berks County For Hillary.
I'm a Penn State alumnus, baseball fan and used to garden back when I had a life other than politics. I got into blogging while working as Interim Campaign Coordinator for Chuck Pennacchio's U.S. Senate campaign. While not a native Pennsylvanian my PA roots run deep. I left the Commonwealth for 18 years while working down south (Delaware). I'm a Democratic Committee man in Berks County but am also involved in politics all around southeastern Pennsylvania.
