"I think what I enjoyed most about working with Steve on our campaign is that he’s not only focussed and organized, he’s relentlessly positive. That energized me on days when I could feel my own energy flagging. He always made me feel like we were close to our goal and made me want to keep working harder. He’s a terrific leader who motivates and encourages his team and makes everyone feel valued and respected, and that they are a critical part of the team.
