Hi Connecticut. We're The North.
When it comes to building organizing and field programs in Connecticut, our experience is second to none. There have only been two Democrats that won open seat Governor’s races: Dan played senior roles on both, managing Governor Malloy’s campaign and consulting for Governor Lamont. And in 2018 Kirk built a GOTV program that helped drive record turn out in the cities. We understand Connecticut and deliver results.
We’re proud of our Connecticut credentials, but it’s not all that we’ve done. Our perspectives on campaigns go deeper than what we’ve seen in one state or with one Connecticut campaign. Our national experience helps us understand and appreciate Connecticut even more and bring a higher level of service and professionalism to our clients.
We offer a mix of traditional political services – and some programs that you may not have seen before. For electoral campaigns, we offer campaign management, field programs (paid canvasses and full field operations), and paid voter contact programs that integrate mail, field, phones and digital. For clients needing help building support for an issue, we design creative community engagement programs that take the best of electoral campaigns and apply them to legislative and issue challenges.
And as a firm, we have a few guiding principles. We care about both strategy and implementation – we can help you develop some good ideas and we have the experience to make things happen. We value transparent pricing, without the mark-ups and kickbacks that are common in political consulting. And we’re operatives first – we’ve not only designed strategies, we’re the people who make them happen.
If you’re facing a campaign or political challenge in Connecticut, let us know if we can help.
Dan, Kirk + The Team

We won't see a future anytime soon where campaigns are won solely by keystrokes. Personal direct voter contact will play a key role in elections, both in the U.S and abroad, for years to come. But we'll need to start getting smarter, use data more effectively, and...read more
Democratic campaigns are debating whether to continue to offer unpaid internships. It's a healthy debate, and it raises good discussion about how we pay people, what kinds of opportunities we create, and how we recruit better - and more diverse - political operatives....read more
