Most recently, Maura managed Rich Lazer’s congressional campaign in Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District. In the three months of the campaign, Maura raised over $420,000 through managing the candidate’s call time, planning fundraising events, and raising funds from local and national Labor Political Committees. Maura also maintained the campaign’s budget, prioritized spending, and managed all compliance operations.
In the 2016 election cycle, Maura served as Finance Director on Tom Nelson’s targeted ‘Red-to-Blue’ congressional campaign in Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District. On that race, Maura created the national finance plan and identified key areas of financial growth, which resulted in a 17% increase from the original projections and raised over $1.8 million in the six months of the campaign. Prior to working on Tom Nelson’s campaign, Maura served as Finance Director on Congresswoman Donna Edward’s senatorial campaign in Maryland. During that campaign, Maura raised over $1.2 million in the first yearly quarter, doubling monies from the previous quarter; and raised $1.6 million in total.
In 2015, Maura served as Deputy Finance Director to Mayor Jim Kenney. As Deputy Finance Director, Maura successfully executed the $3 million fundraising plan. Maura’s responsibilities included: managing the daily fundraising operations, the candidate’s call time and all compliance operations. Maura also planned the candidate’s fundraising events and filed all financial reports with the City of Philadelphia’s City Commissioners Office and Board of Elections.
Maura began her political career as a finance assistant on Governor Tom Wolf’s gubernatorial campaign.
