a full service public affairs firm

committed to your success.

Who we are

Traversing the often chaotic and muddled  path to public office is not a task to be undertaken without experienced and  knowledgeable leadership.  Successful candidates for public office are those that are able to fully utilize their time communicating with voters, and not those who are trying to manage their own campaigns. With over twenty five years experience in campaigns, Van Parish and The Parish Group are exclusively  prepared to lead clients through the chaos of an electoral campaign. Campaigns by nature are chaotic organisms that require unique and experienced management.  By analyzing the candidates assets and liabilities, political environment, and jurisdictional voter history, The Parish Group controls the chaos and develops a road map for the campaign to follow to victory.

Unlike many other consulting firms, The Parish Group is more than just an advisor on the other end of the phone. Day to day, on the ground management is the firm’s hallmark. We pride ourselves on this aspect of our services. We recognize the complexities and obstacles candidates face mounting a campaign and we are there with you to ensure that your campaign stays on the road to victory.

Our Approach

Each aspect of the campaign is reviewed with the candidate and their team. We take stock of the candidates and the campaign’s strengths and weaknesses. Through strategic research we determine which messages will resonate best with voters throughout the City, District or State. After the message has been crafted, we determine the most effective voter contact approach and develop the plan for implementation. We are strong believers in grassroots organization and field based voter contact strategies.

We recognize that every candidate and every campaign is unique. We do not take a “cookie cutter” approach to any of our work. You will receive the full attention and focus from our entire staff.

Working with our strategic partners, The Parish Group is able to bring some of the nation’s top talent to your campaign. We work with an array of pollsters, media consultants, graphic artists, research firms and data analysts.

From beginning to end we work shoulder to shoulder with our clients developing and implementing a winning strategy.
