Tyler Sweeney
Deputy National Field Director

Tyler R. Sweeney is the New Hampshire state director for The Concord Coalition.

Concord is a nonpartisan organization that encourages fiscal responsibility in Washington and helps educate the public about the federal budget and the need to protect our children and future generations from excessive government debt.

Sweeney was born and raised in Weare, New Hampshire. He graduated from New England College with a B.A in history and political science. After working on several local and national political campaigns, Sweeney joined Concord to put his grassroots campaign expertise to use on bipartisan issues with an educational focus.

He works with local and state leaders educating citizens on the importance of civic engagement on issues related to federal fiscal policy.

As a young community leader, Sweeney emphasizes the need for a generational perspective in addressing our nation’s fiscal challenges and encouraging current and future policymakers to act on such issues with the long term in mind.

Bixby, executive director of The Concord Coalition.
