U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján’s re-election campaign recently completed the successful pilot program of the Summer Luján Leadership Congressional Campaign Fellowship (LLCCF). Ten high school and college students from four counties graduated from the LLCCF.
“We held an intensive three-day training session in Santa Fe to kick off the program," said Justin Bailey, the project coordinator.
“The Fellows worked with campaign staff and elected officials, including State Auditor Hector Balderas, Santa Fe Mayor David Coss and Rep. Luján on messaging, relationship-building skills, voter contact techniques and organizing tactics.”
Starlyne Trujillo, 16, from Isleta Pueblo, talked about the experience of attending. “We were all able to share our stories and get to know each other. At the end of the training, I felt like I had known the other Fellows for years.”
After the training, the Fellows returned to their hometowns to organize for the campaign. Once they hit the ground there was no stopping them as they went to work doing community outreach and volunteer recruitment for the campaign.
They organized phone banks, parade floats and house parties for Luján.
