Campaign Manager at Committee to Rebuild Sandusky
The Committee to Rebuild Sandusky was a non-profit political committee established to help pass "Issue 8." Issue 8 was the city of Sandusky's income and admissions tax issue on the November 2014 ballot. It came to fruition and successfully passed as a result of unprecedented cooperation between business, labor, government and local citizens.

About: Teen Leadership Corps is the only 501 (c) 3 non-profit in the country established to provide schools with the educational training, instructional resources and financial means necessary to implement a successful academic student leadership course for high school students.
While at TLC, I met with our corporate sponsors to discuss new initiatives and event sponsorship opportunities.

I also developed proposals for other non-profits, such as the Boys & Girls Club, to successfully engage in partnerships.
