WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is proud to announce that Executive Director Jessica Post has been honored by the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) as one of the 40 best and brightest campaign professionals under 40 years old.

“We are honored to recognize young achievers and visionaries such as Jessica Post who have already proven their immense talent in the political arena and beyond,” said AAPC President Mark Mellman. “With so much potential, we cannot wait to see what these winners accomplish next, and we are so proud to feature them in the 2017 class of award winners.”

“It is an honor to be counted among AAPC’s exclusive list of changemakers and achievers,” said DLCC Executive Director Jessica Post on earning this distinction. “I am proud of DLCC’s successes and our crucial work to expand Democratic power in statehouses nationwide. DLCC’s work to build Democratic strength in state legislatures is essential to thwarting the Trump agenda, grooming candidates for upcoming elections, and preventing another round of GOP gerrymandering in 2021. I look forward to the continued expansion of DLCC and its numerous programs as we support our legislators and continue our electoral victories through 2017, 2018, and beyond.”

Only 18 Republicans, 18 Democrats, and 4 nonpartisan operatives in the United States were named to this exclusive “40 Under 40” winners list. Award winners were graded on a 40-point scale and selected for extraordinary achievements in politics and public affairs.
