Nashville Chapter meeting - Tuesday, Tuesday, October 18, 2016
Our guest speaker is Andrew Ogles who is the director of Americans for Prosperity's Tennessee state chapter (Americans for Prosperity-Tennessee). He has been involved in Tennessee state politics as well as national politics for more than a decade.
Andrew Ogles grew up in Tennessee and graduated from Franklin High School in 1990. He received a B.S. in International Relations from Middle Tennessee State University and attended Vanderbilt University's Owen Graduate School of Management as well as Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business.
He entered the national political scene in 2012, when he worked as National Deputy Director for Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign. That same year, he worked as Executive Director for TN PAC, a Tennessee political action committee "that helped win enough legislative races to move Republicans in Tennessee into super majorities in both the State House and State Senate," according to an April 2015 article in The Chatanoogan.
He became the director of Americans for Prosperity-Tennessee in July 2013 and has overseen several advocacy projects since joining AFP-Tennessee, including the group's campaign to stop Governor Haslam's Insure Tennessee program, repeated efforts to end the Hall Income Tax and efforts to stop Haslam's plan to increase the gas tax.
