Nick Nyhart
President and CEO

A three-decade veteran of social change politics, issue advocacy, grassroots organizing, and nonprofit management, Nick brings a wealth of experience to the national reform movement. Following the 1992 elections, Nick became the director of the Northeast Action Money and Politics Project, a six-state venture that laid the groundwork for Maine’s 1996 breakthrough victory for public financing. In 1997, Nick joined scores of state and national money-and-politics activists to found Public Campaign (which later became Every Voice Center), where he served as national field director and deputy director before assuming the group’s helm in 2000. At Every Voice Center, Nick has worked to win cutting edge state reform efforts and has organized a number of innovative national collaborations to promote publicly financed elections at the federal level.
