Brown alum Tom Perez has been elected as the chair of the DNC
His daughter is currently at Brown
Tom Perez, a Brown alum from the class of ‘83, has just been elected chair of the Democratic National Committee. He was the secretary of labor under Obama before being elected chairman of the DNC, and before that one of the top civil rights lawyers in the country.
He studied international relations and political science at Brown, and helped pay his way through college as a garbage collector and working at a warehouse, which makes all those hours at BUDS seem like a cakewalk.
His daughter also currently attends Brown, and is probably beaming with pride after her father’s win.
