UWashington, D.C. — Campaign support company Campaign Greenhouse has tapped Sally Boynton Brown as its new CEO, reflecting a laser focus on 2019 elections.
“Sally knows better than anyone why every election, every district, and every candidate matters,” said Campaign Greenhouse founder Kathryn Poindexter. “There are thousands of candidates who need our help right now, and Sally will make sure we’re ready to serve them all. Her expertise and national relationships mean she’s uniquely qualified to take us to scale, and her passion for smart, simple innovation makes her a great fit with our model.”
Designed especially for campaigns that are down-ballot, low-budget, early-phase or have a low chance of winning, Campaign Greenhouse provides coaching in campaign strategy, tactics and tools for progressive candidates and their supporters. Resources available through the service include a national network of campaign experts, coaches rooted in community organizing and local campaign strategy, an extensive library of campaign how-to materials and customizable templates, along with cutting-edge research, data and tactical tools.
“I’m thrilled to be working with Campaign Greenhouse,” said Boynton Brown, “Making it easier, cheaper and more sustainable to run for office is how we save our democracy. While the rest of the political world seems to be focused on the 2020 Presidential election, we are focused on electing thousands of progressives around the country to school boards and city councils right now, in 2019. I am thrilled to be a part of this revolutionary candidate support model.”
Boynton Brown was Executive Director of the Idaho Democratic Party from 2012 through 2016, ran for chair of the Democratic National Committee and was President of the Florida Democratic Party in 2017. She has three adult children and lives in Boise, ID with her husband.
