Andrew Slade | National Vice President | firstname.lastname@example.org
A native of Abington, Pennsylvania, Andrew grew up in a state that receives more than its share of attention from presidential candidates. In the wake of the 2004 election, Andrew was inspired to get involved in Democratic politics, so he started to volunteer on the campaign of his state representative in early 2006. After his first day out knocking on doors with the candidate, Andrew was hooked. He volunteered regularly for Democrats at all levels, including Senator Hillary Clinton during her presidential primary campaign, and then-Senator Obama for whom he interned prior to the general election.
In the fall of 2009, Andrew began attending Boston College where he is majoring in political science. He immediately joined his College Democrats chapter and served on its executive board as a sophomore, working concurrently as Finance Director and PAC Treasurer of the College Democrats of Massachusetts (CDM). In 2011, Andrew was unanimously elected Vice President of CDM. Serving in that capacity, Andrew worked successfully to expand fundraising and implement valuable off-year programming across Massachusetts. While at school, Andrew has been involved in a range of capacities in the campaigns of Governor Deval Patrick, Congressman Barney Frank, and most recently Elizabeth Warren.
Andrew served on the College Democrats of America (CDA) Finance Committee from 2010-2011, and was elected Director of Development at the 2011 CDA national convention in Washington, DC. He worked throughout his term to lay the foundation for a long-lasting fundraising infrastructure that will allow CDA to provide a broader base of resources to state federations. He was elected Vice President of CDA at the 2012 national convention in Charlotte, NC.
Outside of College Democrats, Andrew enjoys traveling, Trivial Pursuit, eating out, and watching The West Wing and Boston Legal. He is an Eagle Scout, and has spent his time at home interning in the office of Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz.
