MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Alexander Heckler, co-managing partner of LSN Partners, and his family continue to support the recently established Alexander P. Heckler Family/Gov. Ann Richards Summer Political Internship Program at his alma mater Brandeis University. Heckler initiated this program in recognition of the important role that Richards, Brandeis and his political internships played in his life.
"During my time at Brandeis, I was fortunate enough to be selected as the student-liaison for former Texas Gov. Ann Richards," said Heckler. "One of my responsibilities was to pick up Gov. Richards from the airport every other Sunday and bring her to campus for lectures. Our conversations during those car rides truly changed my perspective and influenced my career path -- she became a mentor to me."
This year, he is proud to help support the second recipient -- Nathaniel Barr -- as he interns this summer at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a think tank dedicated to conducting research on US foreign policy and national security with a focus on terrorism and geopolitics in the Middle East.
Heckler and Richards quickly discovered that their political philosophies were similar and they were committed to public service for the same reason: helping people. The program provides an annual stipend for a Brandeis student to spend a summer as an intern in the government or non-profit sector in Washington, D.C. The first recipient, Zoe Richman '15, served as an intern at the Coalition on Human Needs.
"I wanted to have a direct impact on students who have the same philosophy about public service that I have," Heckler said. "It is gratifying to be able to help students in the name of Ann Richards. Without Brandeis and Ann Richards, I would not be where I am today professionally and for that, I am expressing my gratitude."
A nationally recognized Democratic Party activist, fundraiser and strategist, Heckler founded and serves as managing partner of Miami-based LSN Partners, a national government affairs and communications consultancy. Heckler, a government law attorney, focuses on local and state government procurements. He is a member of the Governors' Advisory Council of the Democratic Governors Association (and former treasurer).
