Staff Announcements

Dear Fellow Republicans,

We are excited to share the following staff positions:

  • Andy Aplikowski, Executive Director
  • Christine Snell, Communications Director
  • Spencer Krier, Operations/BPOU Manager
  • MJ Kang, Events Manager/Special Assistant to the Chair
  • Ron Huettl, Compliance, HR, Finance and Operations Director

Andy joined us last cycle as Political Director and most recently served as a contractor to manage congressional district conventions and the spring committee meeting. Andy comes with great experience/history in our party and we are excited to have him grow with the organization.

Christine joined us in February as Interim Executive Director after working as Communications Director for Jason Lewis for United States Senate. Christine’s passion and strengths are in leading communications and we are excited to have her grow, build and expand our communications effort for the 2022 cycle.

Spencer joined the party in 2019 to manage caucus and conventions. Spencer will be leading the MN On the Rise Initiative and will serve as the key contact for our BPOU and CD boards. We are happy to have Spencer as a continued member of our team.

MJ served as an intern under former Chair Downey. After the 2017 Spring State Central we hired MJ full-time. Since then she’s grown her career and will add Events Manager to her role as Special Assistant to the Chair.

Ron Huettl has served the party for over 20 years in operations, compliance, human resources and finance. We are thankful Ron is still with us and look forward to his steady hand at the wheel to help manage financial oversight and compliance – two very important areas for our party.

We will be announcing additional hires in the coming months as we scale up to ensure the strongest operation possible for the 2022 election cycle!
