Political campaigns

2016 Alex Merced for U.S. Senate Campaign

Brian Waddell Started as the communications director for Alex Merced's U.S. Senate campaign, then later was promoted to campaign manager. He helped coordinate most of the campaign events and trips. Brian proved his dedication to the campaign when during an auction at a Syracuse campaign stop he auctioned off the shirt off his back for several hundred dollars which was live-streamed from the Liberty Memes Facebook page.

2017 Campaign for Manhattan Borough President

In 2017, Brian went from campaign manager to candidate as he runs to become the next Borough President of Manhattan. His platform focuses on the lack of power of the office and the waste of its 4 million dollar budget, which can be saved if the office of Borough President was abolished.

In 2017, Waddell became the Campaign Manager for Larry Sharpe's gubernatorial campaign. He held the position until Kari Bittner took over in October 2018.
