What Makes a Good Political Consultant?

Resumes of political consultants do not follow a standard formula. These individuals can be former Capitol Hill staffers, people who have served in government, citizens with nonprofit or grassroots organizing experience or campaign workers. A consultant’s political leanings should not be the determining factor in your decision to retain them. Rather, find out about the consultant’s level of contacts and their knowledge of the matters about which you need their advice. In many situations, political consultants who lobby Congress are required to file disclosure statements about their clients. This online public information is useful in researching whether a particular political consultant has lobbying experience relevant to your issues and concerns.
