Providence, RI – New Politics, one of the country’s largest progressive group of veterans and national security leaders in the country, has endorsed former Naval officer and Naval War College professor Walter Berbrick in his campaign for Congress in Rhode Island’s special election representing the 1st district.
New Politics, a bipartisan organization, supports veterans and national security leaders running for office acrossthe country. They have endorsed veterans in Congress, including Massachusetts Congressman Seth Moulton and Jake Auchincloss, Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger of Virginia’s 7th District, and many others.
Walter Berbrick served 10 years in the Navy focusing on countering violent extremism. For the past 15 years, Walter has served as a civil servant, educating and bringing together civilian and military leaders from across our government to develop new, real-world solutions to keep Americans safe. His collaborative approach to helping our country’s leaders prevent war and adapt to climate change led him to national security roles at the State Department and Pentagon.
Emily Cherniack, Founder and Executive Director of New Politics said: “As a proud Rhode Islander, veteran, and educator, Walter has made his life’s work building bridges between leaders in our government and defending our country and communities from military threats and climate change. We’re proud to endorse this brilliant, forward thinking servant leader who puts the needs of others and our country first, and I can’t wait to see the impact he makes when he gets to Washington.”
“I am grateful to have the endorsement of New Politics. Throughout my 17-years in public service, I have worked with great leaders from across our military and government, and learn by their example,” said Berbrick. “The most important lessons I’ve learned are the simple ones: Always listen, be honest, and work hard. I will continue to follow these principles in Congress to represent the people of Rhode Island’s 1st district.”
