Clark Announces Campaign Team! (Updated)

State Senator Tarryl Clark announced her campaign team today...it's a pretty impressive team! More to follow when I get home...but I'm even more excited!


I can't cut and paste on my phone yet....so here are the details.

Zach Rodvold is serving as Campaign Manager. Rodvold joins the campaign from the office of U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, where he served as State Director. Rodvold led Klobuchar’s field operation during her 2006 campaign for Senate, winning the 6th Congressional District with over 50% of the vote, and defeating 6th District Congressman Mark Kennedy in his own district. Rodvold has also served as GOTV Director for the Obama-Biden campaign in Minnesota; 6th District Field Director and, later, State Director for Americans United to Protect Social Security; and on a variety of political and issue campaigns in Minnesota and beyond, beginning with the 2002 campaign of the late Senator Paul Wellstone.

Lauren Beecham will join the campaign as Finance Director, having most recently served in the same capacity for Chris Coleman’s landslide victory in the Saint Paul Mayor’s race this year. Prior to leading Coleman’s fundraising efforts, Beecham was Deputy Finance Director for Senator Al Franken’s campaign.

Rounding out the Clark campaign staff: Nicole Wittig-Geske, who previously served as Deputy 6th Congressional District Field Director for the DFL’s 2008 Coordinated campaign; Stacey Springer, a former Chair of the St. Cloud State College Democrats; and policy adviser Emily Lawrence, who previously served as Legislative Director for Congresswoman Betty McCollum and as Leadership Assistant to Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Roger Moe.

It's a very impressive and widely talented collection of folks. I'm even more excited to get the ball rolling in the 6th!
