Community Relations Coordinator
A Wisconsin transplant, John joins the Network with broad experience in communications, public policy, politics, and grassroots advocacy. At the Steve Rummler Hope Network, John handles media relations, communications outreach, public advocacy, and grassroots coordination.
Throughout his career, John has worked on state and local political campaigns and served as a legislative aide and committee clerk in the Wisconsin State Senate. He comes to the Network after a few years in the private sector – working for a strategic communications firm – where he assisted a diverse group of local/state/federal public policy clients, non-profits, startups, and grassroots advocacy organizations.
Whether it’s working with volunteers to knock on doors, crafting a newsletter, drafting a commentary for publication, corresponding with elected officials, or testifying before a government committee, John has the writing, policy, communication, and people skills to get the job done.
In his free time, John is actively involved in the recovery community and his recovery softball team. You can also find him extolling the virtues of Wisconsin’s sports teams, enjoying many of the dining options the Metro area has to offer, reading in splendid isolation, and relishing the company of his dachshund, Winston.firstname.lastname@example.org (612)315-0804
