Experienced. Dedicated. On Your Side.
My specialties are digital marketing, message development and direct mail for political campaigns, advocacy efforts and non-profit organizations. I’ve worked on political efforts at levels from the federal level down to municipal judicial and bond campaigns, launched non-profits, served on boards and helped them grow. My record of success speaks for itself.
My focus is one thing – your success. If your effort needs strategy and execution that wins, let’s talk.
A Track Record of Success

Choosing a digital communications firm for your political campaign or non-profit can be TOUGH.
You need a true partner who will be just as DEDICATED as you are.
You need someone with EXPERIENCE, tried and tested under pressure.
You need someone who will help you WIN in your market.
You need Sanford Advocacy Marketing.
