Leonard Assante

I’ve been interested in the political process for all of my adult life. However, I became more active after the 2001 presidential election and the infamous Florida recount.  I held several positions in the Sumner County Young Democrats and the Sumner County Democratic Party and even tried my hand at running for office in 2006 in my county commission district.  As with many others, my interest in politics waned after 2012 as I really thought the country had turned a positive corner.  However, the 2016 election proved me wrong and I was motivated to become active again. When I saw what Indivisible stood for, I decided to become involved locally as I see synergy between the goals of Indivisible and my personal political beliefs.
