“Success in any organized effort is a focused discipline of planning and execution.”
A good strategy differentiates you from the opposition not necessarily by being better or faster to the game, but rather being smarter about the route taken. The Accretive Consulting team provides political consulting services at the local, municipal, and state level. The team works to deliver everything from daily campaign management operations to execution of individual projects for a candidate or issue group.

- Tracking issues relevant to your business’ interests.

In Nevada especially an election has the opportunity to bring significant change to the trajectory of our state; and though lessons are learned from one cycle to the next, rarely are there repeats or significant similarities from year to year.
General Election 2018
Clark County Commission Race
During the 2018 general election, Kami ran a long-time Democrat in an evenly split District between the two major parties. The district leaned slighty conservative due to the 2016 wave. The political climate was divisive and voters would rather vote for a party than a candiate. The campaign had to run an aggressive, issue-based campaign that was targeted to specific population groups. Identifying voters early and speaking to them through a myriad of methods was the only way to earn their trust and loyalty through election day. There was never a time we could let off the gas. Each aspect of the campaign received equal deliberation and execution. The multi-faceted campaign was one that had never been accomplished before, requiring Kami to be a master principal with many experts perfectly unified and coordinated on a daily basis.
Our strategies worked, as we won the general election with 56% of the vote in a three-way election.
