Two La Follette School alumni – Carolyn Clow and Bradley Campbell – are seeking election in their local communities. Clow is running for the McFarland Village Board, and Campbell hopes to join La Follette alumna Sara Eskrich on the Madison City Council.
A purchasing agent for Dane County, Clow was featured in a national Associated Press story about women running for political office since the 2016 Presidential Election. She received her master of public affairs (MPA) degree from the La Follette School in 2012.
My experience at the La Follette School provided me the opportunity to study best practices in government,” Clow said. “I am looking forward to having the opportunity to bring my knowledge and connections to serve my community.”
Campbell, who serves on the Sustainable Madison Committee, is a consultant with DNV-GL, which provides program evaluation and process consulting to energy-efficiency programs throughout North America. He also volunteers with the Hill Farms Neighborhood Association.
“My broad experience working on policy issues at all levels of government has prepared me well for serving on Madison’s City Council,” said Campbell, a 2008 La Follette School alumnus.
Campbell and Clow will be on the April 4 election ballots in their respective communities.
