LOOK AHEAD AMERICA: Over Thirty Former Trump Campaign Staffers Form New Voter Registration Organization Targeting Disaffected, Patriotic Americans

Washington DC, August 16, 2017 — Under the leadership of former Trump for President Data Strategy chiefs Matt Braynard and Witold Chrabaszcz, over thirty former Trump campaign staffers have launched a new 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to registering, educating, and re-enfranchising disaffected, patriotic Americans.

“There are millions of rural and blue-collar citizens who are disaffected and disenfranchised from the nation’s corridors of power. Their fears ignored, their priorities dismissed, their values ridiculed, they’ve become cynical and pessimistic about a government that so often does not hear their voices,” said Matt Braynard, the new group’s Executive Director.

“Our primary objective is to register, educate, and enfranchise these fellow citizens and ensure that their voices are not just heard but heeded on issues from immigration to trade to law and order. We will fight to make the American Dream become their dreams again.”

“We are positioning to counterweight the Soros’s and Acorns of the world,” said Witold Chrabaszcz, the organization’s Strategy Director. “Our team has the experience, the technology, and the know-how. We’ve amassed a database of millions of unregistered adults and inactive voters. Using our latest modeling techniques, we can find and help re-engage this forgotten demographic through modern and traditional field operations.”

The organization plans to launch a pilot project in Virginia this year with multiple field offices and the goal of expanding to over a dozen more states in 2018.

Consistent with laws governing 501(c)(3) organizations, Look Ahead America’s operations and objectives are not based on political party affiliation or to benefit any particular candidate.
