Help PoliticsPA Name Pennsylvania’s Rising Stars: Top Politicos Under 30

PoliticsPA is assembling a list of Pennsylvania’s rising stars – top politicos under age 30 – and we want your suggestions.

We’re looking for campaign workers, consultants, fundraisers, legislative staffers, elected officials – anyone who’s proven themselves to be a difference-maker. If you’ve ever met someone and thought, “Keep an eye on this one – he or she is going places,” we want to know who.

There are only two rules for nominees: they must be under 30, and they must be based in Pennsylvania (or work for a member of Congress who is).

You can submit your suggestions by email, post them on Sy Snyder’s facebook page, tweet them @PoliticsPA, or type them in the comment section below.

Give us the name, age, and a few reasons why you think he or she is a rising star.

The deadline for submissions is next Monday, December 20. The list will released in time for the holidays.

  1. I would like to nominate Sean Joyce, staffer to Congressman Bill Shuster in his DC office. As a former intern in the office, I witnessed Sean’s hard work and his passion for PA. Hailing from Altoona and working for his home Representative, Sean is ambitious and talented. In my opinion, it was Sean’s dedication to his position as the 2010 Campaign Manager and his commitment to the rest of the legislative staff that makes Mr. Shuster’s office one of the best, most well run and most successful offices on Capitol Hill. Sean’s future working for PA will certainly be impressive. I can’t wait to see what he does for the state.
