Evan Guest is like many Drake students — he loves politics. However, Guest took his love for the democratic process one step further this summer when he took the reigns of an entire school board campaign himself. Louisa Dykstra for Des Moines School Board was both a passion project and a rare opportunity, according to Guest.
“I love campaigns, my favorite part is definitely the experience,” Guest said. “Not many people my age get to do something like that, something so monumental in their career.”
Yesterday was election day, and while we’ll have to wait to hear how the results turn out for now, Guest is confident. But more importantly, he got great experience in a field he loves.
“I love campaigns and in an off-season like the one we’re in today, um it’s really nice to recover and kind of get our feet wet in a local election, and that’s what really matters,” Guest said.
