YLC profile: Jack Sundry

CAE’s Young Leadership Council (YLC) was established to attract rising stars to the world of public policy.

AGE: 26

EDUCATION: Minnetonka High School, Indiana University, Economics, 2012

OCCUPATION: Institutional equity sales, Craig-Hallum

Frustration: It seems like there’s a schism between people who are really interested in politics and policy and the people who don’t really follow it at all. There is a difference between reading headlines versus actually understanding policies and the effects that they can have.

About the YLC: It’s been great meeting a lot of people who are motivated, who like to meet with other people with similar interests, if not different backgrounds.

News gathering: I’m pretty much digital. There are more ways to get information than ever before for winning the battle of ideas. There’re a million different editorials and different blogs, different Twitter accounts you can follow.
