Terry Schilling is the Executive Director of APP. Terry is responsible for developing, coordinating and implementing APP’s strategy, messaging and grassroots activity at the state and federal level.
As the son of a small business-owner, Terry knows how to leverage limited resources to generate maximum results. He takes the same approach to politics—especially campaigns.
In the past, Terry has worked in communications, development, grassroots, and management positions with Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), Sen. Sam Brownback, and various state and local candidates. Before joining APP, Terry managed his father’s race for Congress in Illinois. Running against a 30-year entrenched incumbent on a shoe-string budget in 2010, Terry led the Bobby Schilling for Congress campaign to a 10-point victory. During college, he served as vice president of his student government association and as the director of grassroots operations for the College Republicans. Terry is a graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville and a proud father of four.
