Paige is a 4th generation “election engineer”. Born into a family with deep community and political roots in Appalachia, Paige was going door to door for her father’s West Virginia House of Delegates race at the age of 8 and successfully recruiting her friends to join her. He won, and she was hooked.
There aren’t many people who have managed more successful campaigns across the country than Paige. She’s personally worked on the ground in over 20 states for candidates, ballot measures, and issue advocacy campaigns.
Paige’s command of every element of campaigns has produced win-after-win for candidates and causes across the country. In 2014, she led the Oregon Right to Know campaign to secure labeling of genetically engineered food. In the last few years she has successfully blocked casino interests from trashing Oregon’s Tribal gaming policy, passed record-breaking school and library bonds, and helped progressive candidates get elected and re-elected. (And had a blast in the process!)
Richardson specializes in strategic positioning and tactics, and grassroots mobilization. Her professional passions are good public policy – especially education, food security, and leveraging investment in renewable energy to create good paying US jobs.
