Rutland The Vermont Republican Pary has named a new victory campaign director, according to David Sunderland, the state GOP chairman. Sunderland announced June 3 that Jeff Bartley, a resident of Colchester, will start on directing the 2014 campaign.
“In alignment with our goal of reaching every voter with the message of a more affordable Vermont, more job opportunities and a more balanced state government, Jeff will join the staff as victory campaign director effective June 9,’ Sunderland said.
Reporting directly to Sunderland, Bartley will have primary responsibilities for executing the state GOP’s strategic campaign plans, recruiting and organizing our grass roots volunteers, and leading our online and digital messaging efforts. Bartley will work in close partnership with Vermont GOP Political Director Brent Burns and Operations Manager Marty Searight, Sunderland noted.
bartley, a native Vermonter, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business management at Champlain College in 2009 and graduated earlier this month with a Masters of Business Administration, also from Champlain. He was active with the BYOBiz program and has a passion for entrepreneurial ventures. In March, Bartley was elected to the Colchester Select Board after serving on the Colchester Development Review Board, the Colchester Community Center Initiative, and Governance Committees.
Bartley has received additional training through the Republican National Committee’s campaign management and field schools, while also attending seminars on political organization over the past decade.
