Austin Rodriquez was an Associate in the Government Relations and Traffic Safety department. His responsibilities included supporting state legislation, preparing policy documents, building relationships with State and Federal elected officials and a variety of other tasks such as accounting, finances and event logistics.

A native of the Washington-Metropolitan Area, Austin graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a Government and Politics degree. As an undergraduate student, Austin took a semester off to work on President Obama’s re-election campaign in Ohio. While finishing up his degree he worked for the Maryland Attorney General as a consumer protection and healthcare mediator. He also worked beside an environmental lobbyist on the Hill during his college years. Austin’s ultimate goal is a career in public service as an elected official. For now, he is just visiting the White House we think he will go far in this field! His passion for politics and policymaking was inspired by his AP Government teacher in high school and a desire to be a voice for his community.

In his spare time, Austin loves enjoying the outdoors and playing sports with his friends. Relationships – both professional and personal – are a top priority for him.
