The Democracy Fund team is excited to welcome Adam Ambrogi to the organization. Adam will be leading our work to create a more responsive political system with a focus on our campaign finance system and election administration processes.
Adam is a perfect addition to the team. He most recently worked as Chief Counsel for the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, where he worked on a wide range of issues related to election law, campaign finance, and legal matters facing the administration of the Senate. Adam was the lead staffer for the Rules Committee on passage of the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act, worked on the DISCLOSE Act of 2012, and led the committee’s legal team in examining and making changes to the Senate Rules related to the filibuster. Before working at the Senate, Adam served as Special Assistant and Counsel for Commissioner Ray Martinez of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission where he helped establish its policies and procedures to build that organization, including the Help America Vote College Program. You’ll be hearing more from Adam after he gets his feet on the ground. Over the coming weeks, he’ll begin working with many of our existing portfolio organizations, like our three grantees who are conducting research on our campaign finance system, the Campaign Finance Institute, the Committee for Economic Development, and the Meridian Institute.
