Engage in the Process
Our goal at 3rd Coast Strategies is to work with dedicated elected officials and local leaders to build communities through civic engagement, field organizing, and electoral education.
We are committed to work with those individuals who reflect the vision, character, and commitment of the constituents they wish to represent. For us at 3rd Coast Strategies, campaigns are not only about winning, but also about the responsibility of representation.
3rd Coast Strategies focuses on direct contact with voters, so our candidates can truly understand the needs of their constituents, and correctly address their constituents’ concerns in governance. Over time, these connections to the community foster trust between elected officials and voters, leading to exponential growth in civic engagement and empowering our next generation of leaders.
Change the Game
At 3rd Coast Strategies we recognize the fundamentals of campaigns and organizing are important. An experienced campaign consultant knows that these fundamentals are crucial to the success of any campaign. But, if everyone is practicing the same fundamentals, then there are diminishing returns on your campaign strategy and organizing efforts.
Traditional campaigns focus on utilizing one person, or a small team, to collaborate with people, both inside and outside the campaign, to achieve the necessary goals to advance down the path to victory.
Our approach does not focus on collaboration, but on hyper-coordination. 3rd Coast Strategies implements operating systems that increase efficiency of direct voter contact through volunteers, develop exponential growth in name recognition, and motivate voters to support our candidates.
