No matter what race you're running, timing is everything.
About our Firm
We are a Portland-based public affairs firm.
Some clients choose Ohlsen Consulting because of our success working on some of the biggest races in the country. Despite the Republican wave, Ohlsen Research clients won in 16 of 19 competitive races in 2014. And in 2010? Two-thirds of our statewide clients won.
Some clients choose us because we devote the same level of attention to local races as we do the largest national ones.
Some clients choose us because of our thoroughness. We’re experts on public information laws and how to receive documents at minimal cost. We search for documents, review metadata, look for social media accounts based on geolocation, and use 15 different search engines. We conduct 22 different searches of Facebook, and our self-research candidate checklist is five pages long.
Some clients choose us because we know we’re not infallible and include follow-up in all our projects. We’re not afraid to ask, “What did we miss?” and then track those things down.
Some choose us because we’re licensed and insured, with internal continuing education requirements stricter than the state’s. We’re always at the top of our game.
And some clients choose us because of our progressive values: we offer health insurance and retirement benefits to our full-time employees.
