Why Regional Coordinators?

Michael Needham, Heritage Action’s CEO, explains why we have Regional Coordinators: “For too long, Washington has ignored the voices of concerned citizens, Heritage Action will ensure that lawmakers in Washington represent all Americans, not special interests.”The work of repealing Obamacare, stopping runaway federal spending, and limiting over-regulation starts with conservative activists holding their Members of Congress accountable. Regional coordinators recruit and organize those activists, positioning conservatives for policy victories.

Our Northeast region covers eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and New York.
