Finance: Connor Heffernan

Hello, my name is Connor Heffernan and am excited to be the 2021-2 Finance Director for the College Democrats of Oregon! I am a Senior at the University of Portland and I study Political Science and Economics. Much of my politics and values come from my upbringing in a working family, where I have learned the importance of humility, community, and storytelling. At the University of Portland, I have served in student government, speech and debate, and the (re-)founding of our college democrats chapter. I am passionate about issues concerning the social safety net, labor, and democracy, be that political or economic. As Finance Director, I aim to work with the rest of the board in reinforcing existing chapters and expanding the financial muscle of college democrats.
