2011 NLC Fellow: Doug White

Douglas White--Manager of Government Affairs, Cricket Communications
Whether the commitment has been local, state or federal, Doug White has been involved in progressive politics for the entirety of his career. Starting out in Governor Gray Davis’ administration, Doug quickly cut his political teeth in Washington, DC.
Additional political and policy work with the Speaker of the New Jersey General Assembly, the Obama presidential campaign and Presidential Inaugural Commission, Toni Atkins for State Assembly and Howard Wayne for San Diego City Council campaigns, only furthered Doug’s resolve to become more intimately involved with the progressive cause. Currently, Doug is the manager of Government Affairs for Cricket Communications, a national wireless carrier based in San Diego.
He grew up in small hamlet of Claremont, CA and spent a decade on the east coast. Doug returned to Southern California in 2009, relocating permanently to San Diego. He is an avid half-marathoner and dedicated New Yorker aficionado. Doug received his bachelor of business administration degree in management from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and his master of public administration, public and non-profit management degree from New York University.
