Going All Out Starts With Being All In

What makes a good organization great? Passion. It’s our passion that drives us to work tirelessly on behalf of issues, candidates and organizations whose common objective is to enact positive, enduring change in Ohio and beyond. The success we achieve for our clients comes from a combination of out-thinking our opposition, building unconventional coalitions and crafting a compelling message to reach the hearts and minds of our target audiences. Through collaboration, we work as an extension of our clients and their organizations while never losing sight of the vision and goal.

Advocacy

It’s no secret that successful advocacy is grounded in building a broad base of support.

Candidate Campaigns

We give clients an edge over their opponents by finding innovative ways to break through and win.

Issues & Zoning

We have successful campaigns for tax increases, re-zoning, budget cuts and many more.

Meet The Team

Our team represents decades of experience in the legislative, political and advocacy arenas. In addition to the rich experiences in policy and the private sector, our experts have a long track record of political engagement.

Alan Melamed
President
He’s the old man of the team, just don't call him that. His energy, passion, creativity and strategic vision lead our efforts. He also has some great war stories, even if we've heard them a dozen times.

Steve Caminati
Executive Vice President
When Steve isn’t off on his next leisurely bike ride – such as the 200 mile ride from Utah to Jackson Hole, Wyoming: no hills, just mountains - he’s making our Columbus office the place to go for statewide policy advocacy efforts.

Galen Schuerlein
Executive Vice President
Galen brings the smell of hair spray in the morning. She has hair and shoe issues – and adds incredible skill, creativity and brashness (in an endearing way) to everything she does.

Kenn Dowell
Vice President, Community Outreach
Kenn comes to us as half the man he used to be, literally. He’s lost 168 pounds! His new fighting weight has only increased his legendary agility and adeptness at maneuvering the complexities of grassroots organizing.

Helen Sheehan
Vice President
Helen keeps us in line and makes sure “the trains run on time”. There’s a reason her nickname is “Helldog”. Her experience as a nurse is pretty nice too – we have our own in-house WebMD and there’s no extra charge.

Rebecca Raymer
Controller
Rebecca is a combination of The Wizard of Oz and Sherlock Holmes. Her ability to juggle children (that includes co-workers) and multiple offices, all while uncovering any thing we can’t find- from missing passwords to office supplies- is only matched by her commitment to serving clients.

Cassie Bar
Communications Associate
In just a few short months, Cassie has become an invaluable team member. It must be the outstanding preparation she received at The Ohio State University – home of the National Championship Buckeyes. After a short redshirt season she’s joined the varsity on our special teams unit.

Eddie Rice
Intern
Not many firms can boast about having an accomplished professional speechwriter as an intern, particularly one who attributes his understanding of communications and speechwriting to Aristotle and Cicero. Taking his advice about avoiding too much jargon, let’s leave it that- he’s a great addition to the team.

Tess
Team Therapy Dog
When Tess isn’t hanging out under Alan’s desk thinking great thoughts, she can be found roaming the office looking for tummy rubs. She’s the ultimate therapy dog.

Case Studies / Our Work

We have bold ideas, strategies, experiences and a relentless pursuit of our clients’ goals. We advocate for candidates and causes we believe in and are undeterred by long shots or underdog status. In fact, those only inspire and motivate us to work even harder.
