Mr. Broman Goes To Washington

2012 School Board Election
Fall of 2012 proved to be one of his busiest semesters as William juggled his commitment to his team, his studies, and his College Republican chapter while running for a seat on the GPPSS School Board. He would receive more than 9,000 votes in a campaign that focused on innovative, sustainable policies.
William and the Automotive Industry
In 2011 William spent the summer rotating through various jobs on the plant floor of a Michigan-based automotive supplier. In 2013, William returned for the summer to follow through on the request from ownership to implement more technology and seek out cost savings. Following graduation from GW, William once again found himself working for the same supplier. These experiences have provided an opportunity to connect with people at all levels of the organization, and understand the business from many different angles.
