About Lyric Consulting

Running for political office is no simple endeavor. From the day you decide to throw your hat in the ring, to the day you go to the polls and see your name on the ballot, you will face incredibly demanding challenges in your effort to win.

You will need to assess your district and its demographics to determine if you're a viable candidate. You will need to craft a message and platform, accompanied by real proposals that bring it to life. You will need to know how to successfully handle media requests, and you will need a way to reach voters using direct mail and social media. You will need to understand campaign finance guidelines and how to avoid running afoul of them.

And, above all, you will need to juggle all of these tasks while inspiring voters to cast a ballot for you on Election Day.

At Lyric Consulting, we combine our Beacon Hill, newsroom and legal experience to help candidates put together campaigns that move voters.

Since we opened our firm in 2008, we've helped candidates raise their profiles in anticipation of running for higher office, managed media relations for statewide and congressional candidates, and assisted legislators with policy ideas and legislative proposals that keep them relevant and increase their media exposure.

We are passionate about working with political candidates and public servants who want to take a stand, make a difference and improve their communities through their public service. We find that these types of candidates always have a rich and interesting story to tell, and we come up with ways to tell it, creatively, simply and efficiently through website design, media outreach, writing and graphic design.

We know how to work with the press because, well, we've been a member of the press corps ourselves. Our team includes a former newspaper reporter who understands what editors are looking for in a story. We understand why pitches work and don't work because we've been on the receiving end of them. If you're going to hire someone to handle media for you, doesn't it make sense to choose someone who actually worked in the field?

Need assistance with media appearances? We've helped many candidates prep for interviews and debates, and we've been under the lights and behind the mic ourselves as political analysts. Let us use our experience to make yours a little easier, smoother and productive.

As a political candidate, you also have to make sure you are in compliance with state and federal election laws. One media story about a legal misstep on your part--even if you didn't do it on purpose--can be a campaign killer and fodder for your opponent. With our legal and Beacon Hill background, we can help make sure you don't fall into the trap.

Already have a campaign manager and a partial campaign staff set up? No problem. We are comfortable working with your already-existing team to make sure our communications services fit seamlessly into your campaign and budget.

If you would like to work with people who are as passionate about politics and public service as you are, with the professional experience to back it up, you've come to the right place. Call us today to start talking politics.
