Obama field boss for Miami-Dade: Haile Rivera

I'll bet this young man burns the midnight oil. The first email from him is timed in my inbox at 1:30 a.m., announcing to Miami-Dade party workers that he's the field organizer for the county.

Welcome, Haile Rivera! Yes, we can!

Who is he? I Googled him and here's a YouTube video introducing him a year ago when he was a Bronx community organizer who had won a dinner invitation with Barack Obama.

He said in his email that he's now in meetings in Tampa, and will be here about the end of the week.

A priority need: Housing for staff, office space. Anyone?

UPDATE: This link takes you to a blog post where he talks about running for New York City Council in 2009.
