His efforts span from local government to the halls of Congress and the West Wing.

In his extensive career, Gee has been actively involved in numerous state, local, and federal political campaigns across the United States. In New Jersey, he served as Deputy Chief of Staff in the McGreevey Administration and was a senior adviser for the Corzine for Governor, Booker for Senate, and Murphy for Governor campaigns.
