MONTPELIER, VT — Vermont House Democrats are preparing for the upcoming election cycle with the hiring of Cameron McClimans as House Campaign Director. McClimans will be responsible for creating and implementing a campaign plan that includes fundraising, incumbent support, and candidate recruitment.
House Majority Leader Emily Long (Windham-5) said: “We held a comprehensive search process over the last month and while we enjoyed several very strong final candidates, Cameron McClimans immediately impressed us with his extensive experience working in the field, as well as with his knowledge and understanding of Vermont, having worked on the 2020 Coordinated Campaign at the VDP as the Deputy Organizing Director. We are confident that [the House Democratic caucus] will find Cam just as impressive as we did and will enjoy working with him as we focus on running strong candidates in every district.”
McClimans said in a statement: “I am grateful for the opportunity to return to the state of Vermont as the next House Campaign Director. We have a unique opportunity to capitalize on the high turnout of the 2020 Presidential election through energizing and mobilizing our voters. Together, we can create a locally-focused, grassroots-driven campaign program that will bring an even greater number of Democratic House representatives to the State House in 2023. I look forward to supporting and collaborating with the House Dems, and I’m excited for the work we have ahead.”
McClimans has previously worked on campaigns in Vermont, Virginia, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Maryland. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in political science and history. His first day of work was Monday, April 4, 2022.
