Mr. Trippi, described by Republican Strategist Harlan Hill as “one of the most brilliant political consultants in the country,” was an integral part of the successful Senate race in Alabama.  He has been called the man who “reinvented campaigning” by the New Republic and has been at the forefront of numerous House of Representative victories including Representatives Tulsi Gabbard, Janice Hahn, Mark Takano and Seth Moulton.   He began his career working on Edward Kennedy’s presidential campaign and is best known for his reinvention of campaigning during Howard Dean’s presidential run.

Ms. Matthews will highlight the need to elect strong leaders into key positions at the County, State and national level.  The discussion will center on Democratic strategy to win in 2018 while preparing for the 2020 Presidential election.

Chairman Scott Kane looks forward to hosting this event; “We are inspired today by the leadership of Frederick Douglass and Harriett Tubman.  They shared a vision that changed our nation.  So must we today.  We start right here, right now, with our own expert panel and path to action.  Come join us for this exciting evening.”
