Meet Owen Berger,
Lee District DPVA Field Organizer

Hello! My name is Owen Berger, and I am working as the DPVA Field Organizer for Lee and Mount Vernon Districts for the 2017 Coordinated Campaign. I am a (more or less) lifelong Virginian, born in Fairfax and raised in McLean and Vienna. I did, however, live for three years in Hawaii during high school before returning to attend George Mason University, so if you get a call from a Hawaii number, I’m sorry to say it’s not an all-expense-paid trip to Maui, but me calling to see if you can make it in this weekend. Before joining the DPVA I worked for Attorney General Mark Herring, in Pennsylvania for Hillary Clinton, and on Capitol Hill. You can reach me by email at oberger@vavictory17.org; my cell is (808) 224-5477. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me anytime!
