Quinton Valdez

Quinton Valdez is Battleground Texas’ Operations and Finance Manager. He got involved in politics because he was frustrated with not having representatives who reflected his generation and because he wanted to use his voice, as a gay man, to help others feel empowered to participate in democracy. Before joining Battleground Texas (for the second time — because he was a Field Organizer with Battleground Texas in 2014), he was a Regional Field Director for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign in New Hampshire and then a Volunteer Coordinator with Refugee Services of Texas in Dallas. Follow him on Twitter — where he has tweeted a total of three times, including once after the 2016 election and a gif of Oprah — @qevaldez.
