Jim Meffert’s Campaign Has Hired a Manager
And it’s Alex Falconer, former R.T. Rybak field director.
According to a press release from Meffert’s office:
Falconer brings extensive strategic and managerial experience to the Meffert campaign. Prior to serving as statewide political and field director for the R.T. Rybak for Governor campaign, he managed the 2009 Minneapolis DFL Coordinated Campaign, worked as Deputy Field Director for the 2008 statewide DFL Coordinated Campaign, and served as the Second District regional field director in 2006. Falconer grew up in Red Wing, MN, and graduated from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN.
Meffert said, “Every member of Team Meffert is here because they believe in what we can accomplish for the people of this district, and Alex Falconer is no exception. Beyond his depth of experience and many professional strengths, Alex has a strong commitment to the values that drive this campaign and an ability to bring out the best in those around him. Alex will be a great manager and I am confident that he will help lead Team Meffert to victory in November.”
Ted Thompson, who has been coordinating the Meffert campaign, will continue in his role as senior advisor and strategic consultant to the campaign. Key staff members include finance director Berrett Gall, deputy finance director Elise Convy, communications director Kate Monson, and field director Brian O’Shea. Team Meffert also includes polling by Lake Research and mail and targeting by MSHC Partners, Inc.
Falconer said, “I am excited to join Jim and the hardworking staff at Team Meffert as we gear up to win this race. In this divisive political climate, Jim Meffert’s positive vision for creating jobs, supporting small businesses, and strengthening our schools is what the Third District needs. Jim has built a career on leading diverse groups toward common goals and building consensus among people who often disagree. That is the kind of leader who is going to get things done in Washington, and the kind of leader this district is ready to elect.”
