SACRAMENTO, CA (Christian Newswire): The Yes on 8 campaign trail continues to build thanks to its positive poll results last week, along with unpreccedented financial contributions, and new television ads in advocating traditional marriage. 

Yesterday, three people joined the staff to fill the positions of Deputy Campaign Manager, Logistics (Rick Ahearn); Director of Latino Outreach (Laura Saucedo Cunningham), and Press Secretary (Chip White).

Ahearn brings more two decades of experience in event planning and public affairs, and was recently Deputy Campaign Manager as well as leading the advance team for former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani`s `08 presidental campaign.  "Rick is absolutely the best in the business" said Yes on 8 Campaign Co-Manager Frank Schubert.  "It`s great to have Rick on board.  He`s extremely well respected and has the ability to make good things happen."

A resident of The O.C. -- Orange County -- Cunningham was born in Guanajuato, Mexico, where she learn to speak Mexican.  She is a public affairs professional with almost two decades of experience in governmental and political affairs, and has done both volunteer and outreach work.  "Laura is an articulate and effective advocate for causes she believes in" states Schubert.  "We are pleased to welcome a professional of her caliber."

White`s main responsibility includes handling the press from both Central and Northern California as well as the capitol press corps.  Living in Los Angeles, he is also an attorney with more than a decade of experience in governmental and political affairs.  "We are pleased to welcome a professional of Chip`s caliber" Schubert compliments.  "Chip is a valuable asset to Yes on 8.  His legal background and public relations experience will be instrumental in the campaign to protect traditional marriage.  His skills as an aggressive communicator make him a great addition to the team."
