Brady Watson

Civic Engagement Coordinator

Kansas native Brady Watson attended Kansas State University where he received a bachelor’s degree in History, and then a master’s degree in Documentary Film and History from Syracuse University.  After doing some freelance work in the film and tv industry, Brady started in the nonprofit world organizing around fuel efficiency standards. That turned into working on a gubernatorial race, and, most recently, a move to Knoxville to run a mayoral campaign.

Brady is based out of Knoxville and is responsible for identifying potential races and issues where SACE can have an impact whether that be on the local, state or federal level. Brady will also organize around ballot initiatives and utility issues that may impact climate and energy policy.

In Brady’s free time, he likes to run marathons and explore all the outdoor and community events Knoxville has to offer!
