NRI PULSE STAFF REPORT

Washington D.C., June 5, 2024:  New Politics, an organization dedicated to revitalizing American democracy, has announced its endorsement of Ashwin Ramaswami for Georgia’s State Senate District 48.

Emily Cherniack, Founder and Executive Director of New Politics, praised Ramaswami, saying, “Ashwin is a young leader whose dedication to public service exemplifies the best of what we seek in leaders. We’re excited for this next generation of leadership and know that Ashwin will bring Georgians innovative and dynamic solutions to real issues. His commitment to create jobs, support, and advocate for his community make him the ideal candidate and New Politics is proud to endorse him.”

Ramaswami is a native of Johns Creek, GA, and a second-generation immigrant. He has a background in public service and technology, having worked with nonprofits, startups, and small businesses to create jobs. Ramaswami’s experience includes working at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to secure the 2020 and 2022 elections, and serving as a legal fellow in the Georgia Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division. If elected, he would be the first Indian American in the Georgia state legislature and the first Gen Z State Senator in Georgia, as well as the only state legislator with both a computer science and a law degree.

New Politics is a bipartisan organization that revitalizes American democracy by recruiting, developing, and electing leaders who have committed their lives to serving our country, either through the military or national service organizations like AmeriCorps or the Peace Corps. New Politics support includes strategic advising and training in all aspects of a candidate’s campaign, such as fundraising, communications, organizing, hiring, and team building. New Politics has raised over $8.5 million for their candidates, electing more than 30 of them to office, from Congress to School Board.   

The New Power Project aims to help candidates overcome barriers that prevent many from seeking and winning public office, similar to those faced by women and working-class candidates. They strive to break down these barriers and expand the pathways into elected office for a new generation of servant leaders.
