Meet Alexandra Chandler
When our nation faced threats from abroad, Alexandra Chandler answered the call to serve. Now, dangerous political extremes within our country threaten our economic security, the health and safety of our families and neighbors, and our shared future. We all must answer the call and demand better. That's why Alexandra is running to represent us in Congress.
After 9/11, she answered the call to serve our country.
While in law school, Alexandra and her wife Catherine lived in New York City. During the 9/11 attacks Catherine was on a subway train under lower Manhattan when the towers fell. Alexandra spent hours not knowing if she survived.
That day, Alexandra made the decision to join the intelligence community, where she served for 12 years in Naval Intelligence preventing the spread of weapons of mass destruction from countries like North Korea and Iran and targeting arms smuggling to war zones and terrorist groups. She was also assigned to the Pentagon to enforce the same high standards of excellence and professional ethics across all military intelligence agencies that she set in leading her own division of analysts.
