During part two of our conversation with Rep. Max Rose, Max shares what it’s really like to serve in Congress. He explains what it’s like to walk into the Capitol that first day of service and how to overcome the FOMO that comes with holding higher office. That means figuring out where to focus. Finally, Max will talk about what it takes to build a nimble and entrepreneurial political campaign.
Meet our guest:
From the frontlines of providing healthcare to the underserved and a combat tour in Afghanistan to the halls of Congress and the Pentagon, Max’s whole life has been about fighting to build a better New York City and America, no matter the cost. When he was in the Army, this meant deploying to Afghanistan and receiving the Purple Heart and Bronze Star and when he came back home, it meant running for Congress in a district that no one thought he could win. Through hard work he was able to beat the odds in 2018, and when he went to Congress he worked tirelessly to serve his constituents by attacking corruption, combating Big Pharma, and deploying to a hospital during COVID as a member of the National Guard. Since leaving Congress, he has continued his service by working in the Pentagon as a Special Advisor to Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin. Now he is running for Congress again to improve public safety, tame inflation, and protect a woman’s right to choose.
