Hans is a progressive At-large Member of the Montgomery County Council who is running for MoCo County Executive.

Hans understands the crucial role that young people play in politics and wants to ensure Democrats are training the next generation of political activists and leaders. He first worked with Rock the Vote to register nearly a million young voters during the 2004 election, and then went on to join the Obama campaign in 2007 as the National Youth Director, aiding the campaign to what became known as the “Year of the Youth Vote” by Times Magazine.
Hans and his wife, Angela, have two children who attend public school in MoCo, where Hans works every day to promote progressive policies such as sustainable energy and liveable communities for anyone, regardless of income, race, or zip code.
