Spevak Will Focus on Chapter Building, Campaigns, Engagement
(Trenton, NJ) -- At the Executive Board meeting of the New Jersey Young Democrats (NJYD) yesterday, Marshall Spevak was chosen to succeed Chris James as President of the New Jersey Young Democrats. James was hired to serve as Executive Director of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee.
"I'm looking forward to taking the reins of our state's Young Democrats to continue to build an organization that campaigns use to maximize contributions of young people across our state," said Spevak. "I'm grateful to Chris James for his leadership the past three years and I look forward to continuing to work with him in his new role to involve and engage more young people in the Democratic Party."
John Currie, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee added, "I trust that Marshall Spevak will do well in his new leadership role. I am pleased to have young men (and women) working with me in support of Democratic values. New Jersey is blessed with a talented pool of young leaders working to build the progressive movement in New Jersey — one that will sustain itself for years to come."
Spevak has served on the NJYD board since 2007 and is the former National Campaign Director for the Young Democrats of America. He currently serves as Deputy Chief of Staff to Assemblyman Vince Mazzeo (D-2nd), and has worked on a number of highly competitive successful campaigns including those of the late New Jersey Congressman John Adler, U.S. Senator Chris Coons of Delaware and New Jersey State Senator Jim Whelan. Spevak previously served as a Senior Associate at Kennedy Communications and as the Social Media Director of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee.
