Mark Grimm has managed political campaigns that defeated three long-time incumbents. Could you use that kind of help?

Politics has plenty of people who give advice. Knowing how to win races is a much more precious commodity.

A consultant is much more likely to understand a candidate's needs (and frustrations) if he/she has been a candidate. Albany political consulting expert Mark Grimm's combined experience as journalist, six-time candidate, and statewide campaign manager allows him to connect with candidates and help them win.

Why spend a fortune on political mail and/or commercials without investing in message clarity, a candidate's communication skills, or seasoned campaign advice?


You're running for office because you have something important to say, but you need help nailing down the message, or with polishing your public speaking. Your spending on campaign mail and/or commercials is substanial, yet you've invested little in message strategy and discipline.
