It’s only a matter of time before Miami Beach Mayor and businessman Philip Levine formally announces his candidacy for governor. Today, he announced more campaign consultants for his political committee, All About Florida.
The press release:
Miami Beach, Fla- Fresh off the recent hire of veteran fundraiser Courtney Whitney as finance director, All About Florida continues its rapid expansion this month with the addition of battle-tested national consultants who are joining the team—Pivot, EMC Research, and MDWCOMM.
Pivot is a strategic political communications firm, with years of success at the national, state and local level. Led by firm partners Dean Levitan and Trish Hoppey, Pivot have recently been involved in high-profile campaigns such as Miami-Dade’s only state Senate pick up of the 2016 cycle with State Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez, Congressional campaigns from coast to coast, and large national programs (including AFL-CIO, EMILY’s List, League of Conservation Voters, and SEIU).
EMC Research is a full-service research firm, specializing in polling, analytics, focus groups, and public opinion research consulting. Lending their expertise from the firm are principal Molly O’Shaughnessy along with director Jane Rayburn, who have recently worked with clients from United States Senator Tom Carper to Central Florida Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy.
MDW Communications LLC (MDWCOMM) is a nationally recognized political marketing firm specializing in digital strategy. In 2016, the firm was a part of over two dozen successful campaigns in Florida alone. Under the leadership of firm president Michael Worley, MDWCOMM has received seven national awards for their political marketing work over the past two years, including multiple Pollie and Reed Awards.
“Mayor Levine and our growing team of talented advisors and consultants are excited about the path forward. The country is being tested today and in Florida, we face a decision on how to meet the challenges ahead. The addition of top national talent to All About Florida ensures that the progressive drive for results-focused leadership is front and center,” said Christian Ulvert, senior advisor and spokesman for All About Florida.
