To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Christopher Hass and I worked as a member of the New Media team at Obama For
America, Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. I am writing on behalf of Kevin Flynn,
who I worked with on the campaign from June 2008 to the end of December 2008.
As Deputy Content Lead at the national headquarters in Chicago, I helped supervise a number
of volunteers and interns, and Kevin was one of our most dedicated and valuable volunteers. In
his role within our New Media operation, Kevin worked on numerous projects daily, producing
written content for BarackObama.com, communicating with grassroots supporters across the
country, conducting background research, organizing information and processing multiple news
Kevin is an effective, independent worker (essential qualities in a hectic campaign environment).
He was always the first to volunteer to take on additional tasks, and often put in work hours
equivalent to full-time staff. In addition to his work on BarackObama.com, he also participated
in a number of special projects, as well fundraising and other campaign activities.
At the (successful) conclusion of the campaign, Kevin continued to help out with various wind-
down projects through the end of December.
As a dedicated and committed worker, Kevin would make a valuable addition to any workplace.
I would be glad to answer any questions about Kevin or his work with Obama For America. I can
be reached directly at Christopher.Hass@ObamaAlumni.com or by phone at (773) 704-8257.
