Alan has helped elect Democrats all across the country, and up and down the ballot, as a manager, coordinated campaign director, state party Executive Director and direct mail consultant.
He’s created mail for many Democrats in Congress, including DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján (NM-3). Alan has also been a trusted vendor for two of the leading Independent Expenditure programs – the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (helping elect Democrats in AZ-1, NV-3 and CA-7) and the League of Conservation Voters (helping elect Senators in Connecticut, Montana and New Mexico).
Since 2001, Alan has been at the forefront of turning Virginia blue. Some of the campaigns he has created direct mail for include: President Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 Presidential campaigns, U.S. Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner, Governor Terry McAuliffe, Attorney General Mark Herring, Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney, State Senators John Edwards and Jennifer McClellan and Phyllis Randall, Loudoun County’s first African-American Board Chairwoman. Alan served as Executive Director of the Democratic Party in 2001 and has led two statewide coordinated campaigns: Governor Tim Kaine’s in 2005; and Virginia’s first Democratic legislative coordinated campaign in 2007, which helped Democrats retake the Majority in the State Senate.
Alan, a Mississippi native and graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, got his start in politics as a White House intern and then worked at the DCCC.
