Who Is Maxwell Alejandro Frost? Wikipedia Bio Of Politician
Maxwell Alejandro Frost is among the new generation of Democratic candidates that are breaking the mold.
Campaigning in support of Medicare-for-all, demilitarizing the police, legalizing marijuana and sex work, expunging marijuana convictions, and restoring voting rights to those incarcerated, Frost is causing waves both in his state and outside of it.
Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have backed frost.
The latter's support has substantially increased Frost's appeal to the young, as Sanders is often seen as one of the last decent politicians in government.
Senator Edward J. Markey, the author of the Green New Deal, has also publicized his support for Frost.
Markey went so far as to tweet that politicians need to listen to young people and let them lead.
He had never run for public office before but does not consider himself a political newcomer as Frost started working in politics when he was 15.
Frost started protesting gun violence from a young age after the deadly mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in 2012.
The politician became the national organizing director for March for Our Lives, a group organized by students who survived deadly mass shootings. Frost has also worked for the ACLU in Florida.
