If you’re concerned that there aren’t enough young people involved in the fight to take back our country, you’ll love the two guests we’re interviewing on Friday, June 3 at 8 p.m. Eastern, the same day our Blog Talk Radio show will change to a two-hour format!
Despite her youth, Heather Bachman has a public service resume even seasoned politicians would envy. With a “can do” reputation and a goal of making her neighborhood a better place to live and work, Bachman represents a new breed of public servant. “The old days of politicians’ kissing babies and making speeches, only to retreat from public view until the next campaign cycle are gone. People want their elected representatives to be actually working on their behalf, every day, to improve the community,” explains Bachman.
A popular political commentator for media outlets, Bachman has provided political analysis for numerous, national television and radio programs. Her dynamic, no nonsense, style proved so popular that she hosted her own political and current events radio program, “Heather on the Hill.” Bachman is also a respected contributor. With direct and thought provoking political analysis, her work regularly appears in many news and opinion publications including The Daily Caller, GOP USA, and Political Vanguard.
Heather Bachman didn’t simply learn about politics at school, though she is an honors graduate of Monmouth University and a graduate of Regent University’s Robertson School of Government. Nor did she have the “benefit” of coming from a family of career politicians. Her father, an electrician by trade, taught her the value of hard work, integrity, and financial responsibility. These lessons stuck with Bachman who saw first-hand the toll of “do nothing” policies and increasingly restrictive legislation on small businesses and the communities that rely upon their success. This inspired Bachman to get involved.
While at college, Bachman was elected a Monmouth County Community Representative. She also worked as a Media Relations Assistant to now State Senator Sean T. Kean. “Working with Senator Kean and the entire staff was so rewarding because I was able to get a sense of both the importance and real reward of working face to face with the community.” Bachman was then selected as a White House Intern and served under George W. Bush during one of the most contentious periods in recent history. “Being a White House Intern was an amazing experience,” she explained. “But experiencing first-hand how big government works, I am convinced that positive changes are best made at the local level by people with a vested interest in the success of a community.” When she returned home, she served in many campaign and political positions including Communications Manager for Leigh Ann Bellow’s bid for Congress.
When Heather Bachman arrived in New York City, she settled in Queens. Convinced that a small, transparent, government would best serve the people, Bachman said, “My real joy is working with people in the community, listening to their needs and concerns and working out ways that we can meet their expectations. I know that we can return District 24 to the thriving, business and family oriented community that it once was. My sleeves are rolled up and I am ready and eager to get to work. We have had enough “politicking” and apathy, we need action! I hope that you’re with me!”
We’ll talk with Heather about the important issues of the day and her motivation for running for State Assembly. If you’ve never heard her speak before, you’ll find her brand of passion, commitment, dedication and resolve inspiring!
Next up, Joseph Gale — a recent graduate of the prestigious Temple University in Philadelphia — will spend some time discussing his involvement in politics in his home state of Pennsylvania:
Joe Gale graduated from Temple University in 2011 with a degree in Finance and Real Estate. As a freshman in college, Joe founded the Temple University Ambler College Republicans. At 19, he became the youngest person ever to serve as a committeeperson in the Montgomery County Republican Committee when he won the position in 2008. Joe currently serves as the Vice Chair of the Plymouth Township Republican Committee. In 2009, Joe ran for Plymouth Township Council. He ran in the most Democratic ward in Plymouth, against an incumbent who outspent him 10 to 1, yet he lost by only 85 votes, receiving 47 percent of the vote.
