What Employers Say About PolitiCorps Alumni
“Carol Duong, our 2009 Politicorps Year of Service Fellow, has contributed to our team’s accomplishments from Day One. The benefits of her Politicorps training are obvious. I look forward to hosting another fellow in 2010.” — Tom Miller, Chief of Staff, Portland Mayor Sam Adams
“For two months we scoured the political firmament for an all-in-one staff member. We needed a voter registration genius, an outreach director, and an opera singer with good social graces, quick footedness and strong mental furniture. It was a tall order. Only Mollie Price, freshly minted from the Bus Project’s Politicorps program, fit the bill. Clearly our neighbors in Oregon are doing their job well.”
—Thomas Goldstein, Executive Director, Washington Bus Project
“The Oregon Bus Project has become the farm team for 1000 Friends of Oregon; we have hired two PolitiCorps fellows as Organizers through competitive hiring processes. Bus candidates are inevitably more informed, more articulate, and more poised than their competitors, and they have great on-the-ground experience. As employees, they work their tails off, setting a stellar example for the volunteers they recruit and deploy.” —Bob Stacey, Executive Director, 1000 Friends of Oregon
“The PolitiCorps graduates who arrived during the final week of the 2008 Nevada Caucus were critical to the success Carson City achieved on January 19th… They were thrown into an intense situation in which they adapted to the demands of the job and executed in accordance to our local program. They even stayed the day after the Caucus to help clean and pack-up the office. We appreciated their efforts beyond measure.” —Nicholas Kowalski, Regional Field Director, Obama for America
