Dylan Frick was elected to serve as Chairman of North Carolina’s 8th Congressional District Democratic Party in May 2015. In this role, Frick leads the local Democratic Party and oversees fundraising, communications, training and candidate recruitment in the seven-county congressional district.
Previously, Frick was the Chairman of the N.C. Teen Democrats, the oldest high school Democratic Party auxiliary in the country. In this position, he was responsible for collaborating with schools, teenagers and campaigns to get more high school students involved in local politics. As Chair, he expanded the Teen Democrats from just 4 counties to over 30 counties, mostly in rural parts of the state.
Frick has served as volunteer coordinator for Gene McLaurin’s successful N.C. Senate campaign in the 25th district; he then went on to work in Senator McLaurin’s Raleigh office. Frick was also part of a publicity campaign to urge McLaurin to run for Congress in the 9th District. Frick has managed several other campaigns, including Dannie Montgomery for NC Senate, Carson Snyder for NC House, and presently Rick Foulke for NC House.
As Chair, Frick has written numerous editorials calling out Republicans in Congress and in the State Legislature for ignoring working families, paying lip service to our veterans, and destroying the environment. In 2016, Frick was a member of the Politico Caucus, a group of “insiders” who frequently commented on the Presidential campaigns. In September 2016, he was quoted in an article titled, “Maybe Trump Can Win.” Frick has also served as an active volunteer for several campaigns. Most notably, he worked in Manchester, N.H. for Governor Martin O’Malley’s 2016 Presidential campaign, and in Charleston, S.C. for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 and 2016 Presidential campaigns. However, the most important political job he has ever held was helping his grandmother to become the first female mayor of Norwood, N.C.
Frick has a BA in Political Science and Pre-Law from the University of North Carolina - Greensboro, and is currently pursuing his Master’s in political management from the George Washington University.
