Client List Clarification

In our congratulatory statement for the 2007 elections, we inadvertently listed several school board candidates as clients. Fako & Associates was happy to provide strategic services to People United for Responsible Education, who supported these successful candidates, but our services were provided independently of the candidate’s campaigns and our services were not coordinated, authorized or paid for by the candidates.
