ANDREI INTRODUCES HIMSELF

Building an economy that works for everyone. Tackling the climate crisis and making Arizona ‘the Solar State.’ Protecting our democracy and freedoms – including a woman’s right to choose. For Andrei, these aren’t the words of a campaign. They’re personal. And they’ve been the work of his life.

The grandchild of four Holocaust survivors and son of refugees from communism, Andrei grew up in a small upstairs apartment where his family used food stamps and struggled to make ends meet. But because America welcomed immigrants with open arms and invested in Andrei with public schools and Pell Grants, he went from being a kid whose parents didn’t speak much English to working in the White House and building a business that created thousands of jobs.

ANDREI’S HISTORY OF WINNING FIGHTS FOR PROGRESS

Andrei has spent 25 years fighting for people and the planet – and making real progress.

Andrei’s public service began while working in the Clinton White House. Andrei saw up close that progress was possible. President Clinton called Andrei “a critical part of the team” that passed the first balanced budget in 30 years while helping create millions of new jobs, bringing health care to eight million kids, and expanding college aid for working families.

Andrei worked with Al Gore to sound the alarm and call for action on “global warming” – long before the climate crisis dominated the headlines. Watching Gore’s courageous determination spurred Andrei to commit himself to doing his part and taught him what being a leader should be all about.

In 2007 – before the financial crisis took the Arizona economy into a tailspin – Andrei saw the need for reform on Wall Street. He joined forces with Elizabeth Warren to launch the push for a consumer watchdog agency to stop mortgage brokers and credit card companies from preying on working families. The forces of reform faced off against the largest army of Wall Street lobbyists ever assembled – and won. President Barack Obama signed the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau into law. So far, it has provided over $17.5 billion in relief for American consumers.

Barack Obama turned to Andrei to write Change We Can Believe In, his policy plan for American renewal. And Andrei was the founder of Democracy, a policy journal the New York Times said “incubated Team Biden.”

As the Chair of the Arizona Democratic Party, Andrei led the fight against extreme Republicans like Jan Brewer who eliminated the children’s health program and signed the most restrictive abortion law in America.
