Recently, LWVN President Marcia Jackson had the pleasure of speaking with Dana Hanson, the District Director for Congressman Jake Auchincloss. As she and the Congressman are about to finish up their first year leading Congressional District 4, we thought it would be interesting to learn more about the district office.
Dana has been a community activist for a number of years, including serving as the city’s Director of Community Engagement & Inclusion from 2018 to 2020. Before that, she was a co-chair for Mayor Fuller’s 2017 mayoral campaign.
During the conversation, we learned a great deal about the…
- Composition of the district
- The district office’s operations, staffing, roles & responsibilities, and most important the culture
- Interesting learnings, experiences and changes as she moved from City Hall to CD4
- A bit of CD4 History
- And her creative technique for learning about the district.
