Legislative Candidate A.J. Feeney-Ruiz on Wednesday at 8pm on #HAchat
Our last #HAchat went so well we decided to keep it going. Every Wednesday at 8pm we’ll host a chat on Twitter using the hashtag #HAchat where you can talk about news and politics in the Hoosier state.
If you missed our inaugural chat Indiana Republican Party Communications Director Pete Seat, read our chat synopsis in an earlier post. This week Hoosier Access is excited to have a young, dynamic candidate for the State House, A.J. Feeney-Ruiz. Here’s a tidbit about him from his campaign website- AJ Feeney-Ruiz for House District 97:
AJ Feeney-Ruiz currently helps connect non-profits, small businesses and citizens as Director of Community Development for Indianapolis-based tech startup, Cause.it. Previously he served two stints as Communications Director for the Office of the Indiana Secretary of State while completing his joint JD/MBA degree at Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis and IU’s Kelley School of Business. During his second tenure with the Office, he also served in the dual role of Deputy Chief of Staff. He has maintained his own small business, CrossRoads Group, since 2007, where he specializes in management, communications and media consulting for small businesses and organizations and is a proud member of the Greater Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce and Indiana Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
A political science and media graduate of DePauw University, AJ has spent the last decade involved with non-profit organizations, government, and journalism. He has studied Chinese law and mediation in Beijing and European Union business law in Croatia. He has consulted with businesses in China’s Yunnan Province, and worked for foreign-owned and operated companies in South Africa and Thailand during extensive time overseas.
