Tyler Creighton is Senior Media Associate for the Democracy Collaborative. He works with other leaders in the democracy movement identifying and capitalizing on rapid response news opportunities in traditional and social media, drafting and pitching opeds, and devising strategic communication plans for campaigns, events, and new reports.
While at ReThink, Tyler innovated a daily rapid response program and helped quarterback sector-wide communications strategy around the 5th anniversary of Citizens United and a Senate vote to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn it. Currently, he is helping develop and implement the movement’s media engagement around the 2016 elections.
Before joining ReThink, Tyler led legislative campaigns in Massachusetts to expand voter access and ballot initiative campaigns to overturn Citizens United. His report on the success of the "People's Pledge" in reducing big money in elections garnered local and national media attention and helped push political candidates across the country to propose similar pledges.
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Tyler now lives in Washington, DC. Before moving to DC he lived in Boston, where he graduated with a degree in political science from Boston College and worked for Common Cause Massachusetts. Tyler is an avid hockey player and fan. He can beat you and those over 65 at bridge, enjoys cooking for friends, and would choose a vacation at a lake in the mountains over the beach any day.
