Election Day 2016 may still be about 18 months away, but for us, it feels right around the corner. As we get prepared for what will surely be an exciting cycle, we’re adding members to our team to make sure the most innovative digital and social strategies, fundraising advice, and advertising campaigns are part of our client’s arsenal of tools.
Just in the first few months of the year, we’ve welcomed two new team members to the Campaign Solutions family: Dustin Call and Matthew Hurtt.
Dustin is based in our Sacramento office and brings a wealth of experience in California’s political world to the team. A skilled political professional, Dustin won the first race he managed and has worked in a variety of other campaign staff positions at nearly every level of elected office throughout California.
In addition to his experience working on campaigns, Dustin has completed RNC Political Education programs and even ran for elected office himself. Understanding the needs that campaigns have enables Dustin to provide our clients with the very best service.
He has also served in the California State Legislature as a legislative aide to a member of the State Assembly and as a district representative to a member of the State Senate.
Dustin studied political science at the University of California, Davis and is an alumnus of the Policy Program at the University of California Center Sacramento. He and his wife Stephanie reside in Woodland, California, where he serves as Chairman of the Yolo County Republican Party, the youngest county party chair in the state.
Matthew joined Campaign Solutions in April after spending years writing and designing direct mail fundraising appeals for more than two dozen Republican candidates and committees.
Matthew got his start in national conservative politics at the Leadership Institute, where he identified, trained, and mobilized thousands of activists across the country. During the 2010 campaign cycle, he managed a state senate race in Maryland, overseeing the fundraising, message development, and ground operations.
Additionally, Matthew serves as Chairman of the Arlington County Young Republicans, one of the largest Young Republican organizations in the country, and was an At-Large Delegate from Virginia to the Republican National Convention in Tampa in 2012. He has been published on Reason Magazine’s “Hit and Run” blog and a number of other national conservative and libertarian outlets.
Matthew grew up outside Nashville and graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 2009.
Dustin and Matthew are ready to share their experience and expertise with a wide range of clients. Looking for someone to give the best digital advice to your campaign, organization, or PAC this year? Contact us today.
