Tracker/Writer

Ellie Reynolds comes from the red state of South Dakota. Once in the Rocky Mountains she fell in love with the state and its people. She has participated in local and national elections and has also worked in the private sector doing government relations. When not tracking politicians, Ellie works on her own political blog “The Republican Rant.” She also serves as the president of the non-profit she founded, Community Connections, a non-profit that works with refugees from Burma, Thailand, Iraq, Ethiopia, Malaysia, and other countries providing workshops to increase communication and professionalism during their job search and within the work place. While she holds a lot on her plate, nothing is more important to the young activist as the people and policies that effect struggling Americans. @EllieReynolds4
