Nick Gaines

As a committed member of the New Left, I've been involved in electoral politics and grassroots organizing since 2007. I worked for Bernie Sanders in 2016, worked a couple as an organizer for the Working Families Party in NYC after the primary, worked on AOC's 2018 primary, and spent two years as a community organizer in Harlem. I recently arrived in LA to work for Senator Stern as his Community Engineer. I believe I can be a conduit for the Left in LA to translate our activist energy into tangible policies as one of the rare openly Leftist staff people agitating within the State Legislature.
