Albany, NY. January 14, 2013…New York GOP Chairman Ed Cox today announced the appointment of Joe Uddo as Political Director and David Laska as Communications Director of the New York Republican State Committee.
“Joe and David were integral parts of our operation during the 2012 election cycle,” said Chairman Cox. “Joe’s work in the field helped us send six Republicans back to Congress despite a 63% statewide vote share for President Obama and David’s writing and policy research fueled our message all year. I am thrilled that both Joe and David have agreed to take on additional responsibilities as we continue to elect Republicans and spread our pro-growth message to every corner of New York.”
Joe Uddo was born in New Orleans and graduated from Louisiana Tech University. He is a veteran of several local and statewide elections with experience in both grassroots and legislative policy positions. As Deputy Director of the New York Victory Program in 2012, Joe worked with federal, state and local candidates in targeted races across New York, managing all voter databases and voter contact initiatives. Under Joe’s direction, over 1,500 volunteers operating out of 13 victory centers made over one million phone calls and knocked on over 40,000 doors.
“I’m excited to bring my knowledge of political technology and strategy to the New York GOP,” said Joe. “As Political Director, I will continue to work with our Republican candidates up and down the ballot to grow our Republican universe and win elections across New York.”
A native of Staten Island and graduate of New York University, David Laska joined the State Party in 2010 as a writer and policy researcher. He has since worked with Chairman Cox to draft speeches and press releases and publish 29 op-eds over the last two election cycles, including his own regular column on Fox News Latino.
“The Republican Party is New York’s foremost voice for economic growth, lower taxes, limited government, local control and fiscal responsibility,” said David. “I thank Chairman Cox for his confidence and look forward to continuing to advocate for the pro-growth principles New York needs to regain our competitive edge amongst the states of the Nation and the nations of the world.”
