Young began his career in politics as a consultant during the 2012 election cycle. He has since worked on over 20 campaigns throughout the state of California including some of the largest, most expensive, and closely watched races in the San Diego County area. Young became part of Grassroots Resources in 2015 after working for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2014 and leading the largest field operation in the country in support of the Scott Peters for Congress campaign.
Young maintains very close ties to the San Diego political arena by being elected to the San Diego County Democratic Central Committee, with his lobbying and advocacy efforts on behalf of cannabis policy, and by providing the data, voter targeting, and technological support to the California Democratic Party and 14 other county parties throughout California.
Young is also the Executive Director of the Association of Cannabis Professionals, a lobbying and advocacy organization working towards establishing common sense cannabis regulations throughout Southern California in order to protect medical patients and provide economic opportunities for small businesses and individuals.
In addition to his work in both politics and the cannabis industry, Young is a passionate advocate in the disability community as a board member for the San Diego Disability Services Advisory Committee as well as a 5-year high school Assistant Varsity wrestling coach at Canyon Crest Academy.
