August 30, 2017
MANCHESTER, NH – Today, the Joyce Craig for Manchester campaign announced the hiring of three organizers. Blake Tyler, Steve Muzzey, and Cayla Eck will lead the Craig campaign’s outreach to voters in every ward of Manchester.
“I’m proud of the work our campaign has done to talk to voters early and have conversations about the direction we want for Manchester”, said Joyce Craig. “Residents are telling us it’s time for a change at City Hall and we’re working hard to earn every vote.”
“We are investing in our organizing team early to empower local volunteers and activists to engage with their neighbors about the importance of this race and Joyce’s vision for Manchester”, said campaign manager, Craig Brown. “Joyce Craig has the energy to address our challenges and move Manchester forward and we’re not taking any vote for granted.”
Blake Tyler is a Manchester native and graduate of Central High School. He was previously an organizer in the Nashua area for the New Hampshire Democratic Coordinated Campaign in 2016.
Steve Muzzey is a Concord native and graduate of UNH. He last worked as an organizer for Kevin Cavanaugh’s successful State Senate special election campaign and managed Tom Sherman’s campaign for State Senate in 2016.
Cayla Eck is from Keene and is a graduate of Tulane University. She’s previously worked in the special education department at Keene Middle School and was an organizing fellow on the New Hampshire Democratic Coordinated Campaign in 2016.
Blake and Steve started with the campaign in early August and Cayla will join the team on September 2nd. The organizers work full-time and hold volunteer phone banks and canvasses every day of the week.
Joyce Craig was born and raised in Manchester and is a graduate of Memorial High School and the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Business Administration. Joyce knows first-hand the challenges that Manchester residents face and that our city cannot reach its full potential without new leadership in City Hall. In 2015, Joyce Craig fell short to Mayor Ted Gatsas by just 64 votes in her first city-wide election.
