Wasserman Schultz Announces Luis Miranda as DNC Communications Director
Washington, DC — Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie
Wasserman Schultz announced today that Luis Miranda will return to the
Democratic National Committee as Communications Director at the
beginning of October. Miranda has a long record of
public service, as a Democratic communications strategist, and
previously ran a 50-state regional communications program at the DNC
for then-Chairman Howard Dean.
“We're thrilled to have Luis join the Democratic National Committee team as our Communications Director, bringing with him a long record of public service as well as a winning campaign record," said DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. “Luis’ tremendous experience working on issue advocacy, at the White House, at the Democratic National Committee, and on campaigns at all levels make him an incredible addition to our team and will help us promote policies that strengthen the middle class, and win in 2016.”
"I am grateful to DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz for asking me to serve at this historic moment as the American people prepare to elect their next president,” said Miranda. “I’m looking forward to helping tell the stories of the millions who now enjoy health care they previously couldn’t afford, or are back to work thanks to the longest streak of private sector job growth on record, or have the support to pursue an education because Democrats fought so fiercely to protect and expand opportunities for all. I am proud to join a DNC team that has been critical to those successes, and that is working to elect a president who will keep America moving forward.”
Most recently Luis worked as a strategic communications consultant based in Washington, DC with a variety of advocacy clients. From 2009 through 2013 Luis served as a spokesperson and Director of Hispanic Media for President Barack Obama at the White House, playing a key role in developing the Administration’s messaging on immigration reform and border security. Luis began his career working for then-Minority Leader Dick Gephardt and then-Chairman Patrick Kennedy at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), served as a spokesman for then-Senator John Kerry during his presidential campaign, and ran a 50-state regional communications program for then-Chairman Howard Dean at the Democratic National Committee (DNC), helping Democrats recapture Congress in 2006 and the White House in 2008. He also worked for the 2000 Gore campaign in Florida, including on operations for the Florida recount.
