Julie Griffiths
Julie has over 23 years of campaign experience spanning across the United States. Starting on the east coast, she relocated to California and has managed some of the highest profile legislative races in the State of California. Notably, she managed the successful Assembly Campaign for Danny Gilmore in 2008. In a district where Democrats held a huge registration advantage and turnout for Barack Obama was high, she navigated Republican Danny Gilmore to victory. She went on to become Director of Member Services for the Assembly Republican Caucus. An effective strategist and coalition builder, Julie services corporate clients throughout California and neighboring states.

Paul Olson and Joel Olsson
Brothers Paul and Joel got their start in 1998 organizing ballot initiative and voter registration drives. After qualifying dozens of ballot measures without fail, Paul and Joel branched out to campaign management and organizing effective ground operations for Republican Candidates. The Olson’s have been instrumental in many key local, legislative, and Congressional victories throughout the State of California. Most recently, the Olson’s played a large part in getting Andy Vidak elected to State Senate and managed a successful ground independent expenditure to help elect Kevin Faulconer Mayor in San Diego.
