The HighGround team won recognition in four categories at the 2015 Reed Awards last Friday in Las Vegas. The Reeds are national awards from Campaigns & Elections, the preeminent “how-to” journal of politics, focused on the tools, tactics and techniques of the political consulting profession.
The HighGround team was recognized for its work in the following categories:
Yes on 480 newspaper won for Best Lit Piece. Prop 480 passed in November with 63% of the vote.
Superhero Phone Call won for Best Automated Phone Call for Independent Expenditure, Ballot Initiative, or Issue Advocacy/Public Affairs Campaign. The campaign on behalf of Arizonans Can Make a Difference with a vote was aimed at increasing voter participation.
Hickman for Supervisor won for Best Yard and Outdoor Sign. Clint Hickman won the August Primary with 69.1% of the vote and was uncontested in the General Election.
Last year, HighGround won two Reed awards from Campaigns & Elections. In addition, HighGround was part of the team that won the prestigious “Campaign of the Year” in the Public Affairs/Advocacy category and also won a Gold Pollie from the American Association of Political Consultants
The Reed Awards, named after Campaigns & Elections’ founder Stanley Foster Reed, recognize excellence in campaign management, political consulting and political design.
