On Monday, the Governing Board of Take Back Our Republic Action unanimously elected one of it's founding staff members from 2015, Diane Cullo, to join the Governing Board. The Board also elected Noel Wilkins as non-voting Board Secretary.
Cullo becomes the 9th voting member of the Governing Board with a focus on Public Affairs & Communications. Her bio now appears with the other Board Members, staff, and consultants on the "Our Team" page as follows:
"Diane has successfully navigated the crossroads of politics, public affairs, and communications over the course of her 30+ year career by remaining faithful to the concept of pragmatic politics where communication is key and getting citizens involved in the democratic process is the only way to move forward as a nation. She is a consultant to government entities, associations, non-profits, and corporations providing strategic and tactical counsel to raise awareness, enhance image, shape policy, and build market share through high-impact calculated solutions.
"In the campaign space, she was a contributing architect and Senior Advisor to Lt. Governor Winsome Sears, making history in the Commonwealth of Virginia for successfully electing the first woman and first woman of color elected statewide while serving as Co-Director of Fairfax County Women for now-Governor Glenn Youngkin. Fairfax County is one of fewer than 50 counties with more than 1 million people and 35,000 more Fairfax residents voted for Youngkin than the previous Republican nominee to improve his margin by 7 percent.
"She was one of the six founding members of Take Back Our Republic Action in 2015, advancing fundraising and public relations before being tapped by the Trump Administration to successfully direct the U.S. Senate confirmation process for USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue. Joining the Administration in 2017, she spent four years at the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture directing U.S. Senate leadership confirmations and created the Department-wide Office of Partnerships and Public Engagement (OPPE) to strengthen agriculture and the lives of underserved and underrepresented Americans through access to programs and services. Diane also led the Office of Tribal Relations using the same communications and outreach methodologies with our nation’s 574 Federally recognized tribes."
