jimmy4Jimmy, a Phoenix native, is a junior studying public policy with a concentration in law and policy and a minor in sustainability. His work for the student community has been both wide and successful. From being the team leader of the Andrew Goodman Foundation, where they registered nearly 1,000 voters, to his work as the Founding Executive Director of Students for Affordable Tuition (SFAT), an effort that spanned three campuses, and two universities that helped win $8 million for university funding, he has been dedicated public servant to his fellow college students.

Since his freshman year, he has been hooked to fighting for students. He worked an internship in the Congressional District Office of Ruben Gallego and went on to become a weekly opinion columnist for the State Press.

 As Vice President of Policy Jimmy, will be the primary researcher and organizer for initiatives that deal with university, city, state and federal government. His background in organizing makes him a perfect fit for the position.

Jimmy hopes to one day be a lawyer and a writer, and he also vocally expresses the fact that he is a vegetarian. For life.
