BATON ROUGE - In April 2019, Cleo Fields appointed 19 year old, Kasey Williams to be his campaign manager during his bid for the vacant 14th Senatorial District seat. Williams is currently a sophomore at Southern University and A&M College, majoring in Political Science.
She went on to hire 5 more young leaders to assist her in various areas of the campaign: Shalyric Self, graduate of Southern University served as Public Relations Director; Lorenzo Septs, senior at Wiley college served as Director of Policy; Dylan Thomas, a junior at Louisiana State University; Colleen Temple, junior at LSU Laboratory School; and Christopher Flood, sophomore at Baton Rouge Community College.
"If it had not been for their hard work and commitment to their jobs, our victory wouldn't have been possible! Embracing our young people as the new generation of leadership and trusting in them to deliver good results is the very best decision," said Fields.
The young team's daily tasks included distribution of letters to voters, communication with voters via email and SMS text messaging, phone banking, planning of campaign events, planning of policy and more.
