Meet Sam Scharff.

Sam joins GT Dems for the summer of 2019. We have a feeling he's going to be very busy because there are lots of exciting (and surprising) things happening here this summer!  Here's a little background about Sam.

Summer Intern

Sam Scharff was born in Kalamazoo and was raised in Delaware, Ohio. He will be entering his senior year at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio, this fall, as a Pre-Law and Political Science major with a minor in Spanish.


Sam has been coming to Northern Michigan for years. Last summer, Sam spent the summer in Glen Arbor working at the Cherry Republic Public House.


Sam previously interned for the Deleware County (OH) Prosecutor's Office. And Sam has volunteered for over five years as a volunteer youth soccer coach.

In his own words, "I am extremely excited to be in Traverse City for the summer and to see the inner workings of local campaigning. I look forward to being able to lend a helping hand to the Grand Traverse Democrats and see the impact of up-close politics in the community. I am interested to see what day to day campaigning is truly like and be able to take away new found knowledge as well as new relationships with the members of the Grand Traverse community."
