BIO

Why is it important that at this particular point in time, right-of-center youth become involved publicly, whether in politics, media, their communities, or in other capacities?

I believe it is important that young conservatives become active in politics because this upcoming election will rely heavily on youth involvement. In 2012 and 2008, young liberals came out strong for their candidates. If we want a conservative in the White House in 2016, young conservatives need to work harder than ever before to broaden our base and bring new, young voters to our party. Our principles of limited government and individual liberty resonate well with Millennials. As young conservatives we need to ensure that as 2016 approaches we are attracting new people and new millennial voters who share our principles.

What must elected officials and others in positions of leadership do to make a right-of-center message resonate with the Millennial generation?

I think it always helps to have young people in positions of leadership. In my state and in my district, I didn’t believe that young conservatives had significant representation on the state level, so I ran for office. When more young people become active in their communities and in their states, people notice. People see that millennials are concerned and it brings others to listen. When our elected officials do listen, stress that it is our future and our financial burden at stake. And stress that actions such as risky spending do have negative effects and those effects fall upon the shoulders of our generation.

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

I would like to see more young conservatives be involved in the political process — whether it’s running for office or being a leader on campus. I would love to see more young conservatives on college campuses and I would like to see a broader base of young people in our party. I think the best way to do this is to focus on our principles: limited government, individual responsibility, and innovation. These concepts resonate well with young people. We cannot give up on our generation and we can do this by talking with our peers, standing up to liberal media and by working hard within our communities to show that our principles work.
