The Rubicon

Patrick Commers
Patrick is a junior at St. Paul Academy and Summit School. Patrick has two passions (other than The Rubicon of course): baseball and politics. He plays with the PHD Baseball Club on a team named "the PHD Twins". Patrick also plays baseball with the school. For Patrick, politics are worth putting on a chicken suit at the Minnesota State Fair and running around in it. What cause would mean this much to him? The campaign for electing Mike McFadden as a U.S. senator for Minnesota. This recent summer, Patrick worked as an intern for McFadden's campaign. On The Rubicon, Patrick is the head photographer and arts reviewer/columnist.
