Fresh off Underdog Win in Virginia, Former Glenn Youngkin Campaign Staffer Announced as Campaign Manager for Demetriou for Ohio House

December 7, 2021

CHAGRIN FALLS – Today, the campaign for Steve Demetriou, a veteran and small business owner running for the newly formed Ohio State House District 23, announced that they have brought on Isaac Hadam, a former Youngkin campaign staffer, to serve as campaign manager.

Hadam served as the Richmond Regional Youth Outreach Coordinator on the Glenn Youngkin Campaign and ran field operations in Hanover County, Virginia as well. In his work, he recruited dozens of volunteers and interns from colleges to participate in the campaign, and in Hanover County he built a team that knocked over 31,000 doors in the lead up to election day.

Before his time on the Youngkin Campaign, Hadam served as the campaign manager for Maine State Representative Nathan Wadsworth in 2020. During that campaign, Hadam helped Rep. Wadsworth earn his largest margin of victory ever in his district. 

“We are excited to have him on the team,” said Demetriou. “What happened in the Virginia Governor’s election was really amazing to watch as the state turned Red, and we are excited to have Isaac on board fresh off such an amazing performance.”

“I am excited to be a part of the movement we are seeing here in Ohio State House District 23,” said Hadam. He continued, “The passion Steve has to serve his community, state, and country is truly unparalleled, and something that motivated me to join this campaign. And that passion, along with his impressive record of service and commitment, is really resonating with folks across the District. I look forward to helping him win this upcoming year.”

Steve Demetriou grew up in Northeast Ohio. He graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 2011 with Dean’s List honors and a bachelor’s degree in economics. After West Point, the United States Army commissioned Steve as an infantry officer. He deployed to Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom, where he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal. After the military, Steve started and successfully grew a business, eventually employing more than 60 people. Steve now runs an investment business with his family. He is married with one son.
