PMCohen Public Affairs
Campaigns are about winning. In order to win, you need to reach the maximum number of likely voters, with the right persuadable message, as efficiently as possible — and then make sure you get those voters to the polls.
There are never enough resources, so making the right choices and staying focused can be the difference between success and failure.
PMCohen Public Affairs, a San Rafael based rm, offers strategic communication and outreach, and political campaign services to help you succeed.
