Field Director

Dr. Kristin Lyerly’s campaign for Wisconsin’s Eighth Congressional District is seeking a Field Director. This position will report to the Campaign Manager, and will oversee all Field Operations. A strong candidate will have the skills and knowledge to develop and execute a comprehensive field program aimed at getting out the votes necessary for Dr. Lyerly’s candidacy to be successful in 2024.

Northeast Wisconsin is slated to be one of the focal points in one of the most pivotal swing states this cycle, already seeing visits from several Presidential surrogates, and  increased attention from Senate candidates. With the addition of new state legislative maps, Wisconsin is also expecting an especially large turnout this year due to excitement from down-ballot races. This being said, this role will benefit from a collaborative mindset, as we engage with candidates and campaigns at all levels.

The preferred candidate will have the soft skills to complement their technical know-how, a strategic mind, and the ability to lead and inspire a diverse group of stakeholders, organizers and volunteers. Relocation to the Green Bay area is required for this role. 

About the Campaign:

Dr. Kristin Lyerly is the Democratic candidate for WI-08, the only open seat in Wisconsin. As a practicing OB/GYN, after the fall of Roe v. Wade, she fought against Wisconsin’s 1849 criminal abortion ban – and won. Now, after the surprise, early retirement of Congressman Mike Gallagher, she is running to fill the vacated seat, with a special election in November to fill out the remainder of the term. Dr. Lyerly has already raised over $750,000 in the ten weeks since entering the race, and has received major endorsements, from Senator Tammy Baldwin to 314 Action and Reproductive Freedom for All. Wisconsin is one of the most crucial swing states in the country and, with new state-level maps and unprecedented engagement, high turnout rates are expected.
