IMG_2055Conor graduated from the University of Saint Thomas in the spring of 2016 with a B.A. in Political Science and a B.A. in International Studies. He participated in his university’s College Democrats club and worked on U.S. Congresswoman Betty McCollum’s campaign during the 2014 election cycle.

He was hired by Grassroots Campaigns as an Assistant Director and started working the day after his graduation in May 2016.

“I started in the new Minneapolis office with just my lead director and myself, which was an amazing way to learn every aspect of how to set up and run a canvassing office. Through hiring and training passionate staff and talking to ardent supporters I affirmed that grassroots mobilization can make an incredible positive change in our country and in our world”.
