While an undergraduate at Bridgewater State University, Brett assumed several leadership roles, two of his prominent being the Vice-President of his graduating class and President of the National Biological Honors Society. After completing his B.S. in Biology in May 2007, he went on to graduate school at The University of Texas at Austin, graduating in May 2013 with a Ph.D. in Biology. He then spent two years studying human brain cancer in Paris, France until he decided to take the plunge and explore his passion for politics and campaigns. In 2015, he moved back to his hometown of Dighton, Massachusetts and became heavily involved in local politics and quickly fell in love with it.
In April 2016, he was the youngest person and the first openly gay individual to be elected Selectman in Dighton, garnering nearly 66% of the vote. He ran on a platform of bringing people from all walks of life together in order to make progress. Once elected, he turned his focus to national politics and enthusiastically joined GCI in April 2016 as a National Recruiter. He started as a preliminary interviewer and, within several weeks, had worked his way up to become Second Round Interview Coordinator.
“I thoroughly enjoy working with Grassroots Campaigns because, unlike a typical office job, I know that the work I am doing here will have a profound impact on the upcoming presidential election”.
