Jason Zandri for Mayor Committee announces the hiring of What's Next Connecticut Campaign and Political Consulting.
Jason Paul has been involved in Democratic politics since knocking on doors for Congressman Sam Gejdenson in 2000. He was national high school liaison for Young Democrats of America and President of the Brandeis Democrats. Since graduating from college in 2009 he has worked at the municipal, congressional and statewide levels. Most recently he managed the upset campaign of State Representative David Alexander in Enfield’s 58th district. He is also known as an op-ed writer for CT News Junkie.
Jim Sargent has been active in Democratic campaigns since he was a high school student volunteering for then-State Representative Chris Murphy. In the years since, he has played a wide variety of roles on municipal, state legislative, and statewide campaigns, including managing the database for Governor Dannel Malloy‘s 2006 campaign and leading the field operations for Hartford’s City Council President Shawn Wooden. Jim believes that campaigns are won when hard work meets useful data and creative messaging, and that is what guides his work with What’s Next. Off the campaign trail, Jim spends his time agonizing over Seattle Mariners baseball, daydreaming about Hartford Whalers hockey, and wondering how the world would be different if Michael Dukakis had been elected President.
