    NRECA in Arlington, VA


    DemBiz is proud to host an interactive evening of politics and policy questions and answers with Mike Harney and Mike Henry, the Chiefs of Staff for Virginia’s two Democratic U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.  DemBiz Vice-Chair Larry Roberts will be the moderator.  

    This event will take place on Wednesday, April 26 at the Metro-accessible National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Building, 4301 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington.

    Guest Speaker Mike Harney is serving as Chief of Staff to Senator Mark Warner. His previous Capitol Hill experience includes positions with Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) (Chief of Staff, Deputy Chief of Staff, and Legislative Director), Representative Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) (Policy Advisor and Legislative Assistant), and Representative Bud Cramer (D-AL) (Legislative Correspondent). Before joining Senator Warner’s office, Mike was the Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Congressional Affairs in the Obama Administration.

    Guest Speaker Mike Henry has been involved in Virginia and national campaigns for over 20 years. He currently serves as Chief of Staff to Senator Tim Kaine. His experience includes management of high-visibility national races as well as contentious local and state elections. Mike has guided the strategic political communications, fundraising, and grassroots initiatives associated with each of the campaigns. He has managed races in swing states and districts and has widely been credited with developing campaign strategies that have changed the political landscape in Virginia, Florida and in other states throughout the south. His campaign victories include the election of Senators Bill Nelson (D-FL), Mark Warner (D-VA) and Tim Kaine (D-VA), former Representative Martin Frost (D-TX) as well as former Governors Mark Warner (D-VA) and Tim Kaine (D-VA). Mike has also worked with several advocacy organizations, ballot initiatives, and consulting groups to ensure electoral turnout and promote awareness of specific issues.
