As the new 3rd quarter report of Americans Elect reveals, Nick Troiano has been hired as Communications Manager for the political corporation, the goal of which is to elect its own presidential and vice presidential candidates to the White House in 2012. Troiano had a double relationship with Unity08; after being recruited as a high school student to sit on the National Board of the Unity Petition group, he eventually became Unity08′s College Coordinator.
A few weeks ago, I was offered a full-time job at a new organization that plans to launch a national political reform movement early next year. My soon-to-be boss told me, “Nick, you plan on writing your senior thesis on this very kind of political movement. Why not be a part of one, from the ground up, and go back to school next year to write a book instead?”
P.S. Although he has not yet graduated from university, Nick Troiano has nevertheless been involved in impressive episodes of activism for open governance. His involvement is a good sign for Americans Elect. The organization could use a bit of openness.
Americans Elect is already highly active behind the scenes; more about that later. But if you’re looking for a public launch, you heard the man: you’ll need to wait until the start of 2011.
