2019-20 Executive Board

President

Catherine Wicker

Texas State University

I'm a first year masters student at Texas State University majoring in Public Administration. I'm excited to serve as the President for the next year and joining all of you in the fight to turn this state blue! In my free time you will find me traveling, running, painting or spending time with my boyfriend and friends in San Marcos.

Vice President

Gabrielle Harris

Stephen F. Austin State University

I’m a junior Political Science major at Stephen F. Austin State University. Growing up in the DFW area, I saw how the politics around me worked: in favor of some, and not for others. You can probably find me online shopping or being the first to retweet our TCD account. Most importantly, I am a proud Beyoncé stan.

Communications Director

Marco Guajardo

University of Texas at Austin

I’m a Marketing senior at UT Austin. I grew up in Laredo, Texas where the local government is in desperate need of young talent – that’s what fueled my start into politics. When I’m not writing the tweets or spending hours on graphic design projects for TCD, I’m an avid sneakerhead and Formula 1 fan.

Political Director

Joe Cascino

University of Texas at Austin

I’m a sophomore Government major at UT Austin where I’m also the chapter President. When not fighting the good fight, I spend my time screaming at my beloved Chicago Cubs, reading (or at least pretending to read) Nietzsche, and watching the same Rick and Morty episodes with an ex-girlfriend’s Hulu password on pirated WiFi.

Brennan Munson

Lone Star College

Howdy! I’m a Public Relations major just trying to get to law school. I’m a precinct chair in Harris County, the current Financial Director of CDA, and a proud Houstonian. My passion is creating change through political action, and my political action is blue.
