Fako & Associates, Inc. Congratulates Our Winning Clients

We wish to congratulate several of our mayoral clients who achieved electoral victories in yesterday’s municipal elections: Tom Weisner of Aurora, IL (62%), Tim Nugent of the Village of Manteno, IL (53%), and John Spring of Quincy, IL (54%).

Yesterday’s municipal election was dramatically different than the general election we experienced just six months ago. Despite the clear skies and comfortable temperatures, this time, there were no waves of early voting or lines on Election Day. As many experts in the field proposed, yesterday’s election showed the effects of voter fatigue.

Low turnout makes for challenging elections. Campaigns have to motivate their supporters to participate in the election and ensure that every supporter is accounted for on Election Day. These efforts underscore the importance of having a disciplined field campaign and the need to develop the resources required to reach out to voters.

Congratulations Mark Lesko

Fako & Associates, Inc. would like to congratulate Supervisor-elect Mark Lesko in his overwhelming victory in the election for Brookhaven, New York Town Supervisor on March 31, 2009.

F&A, Inc. worked with an incredibly talented group of consultants, campaign staff, and volunteers to develop the winning strategy that guided Lesko in securing 55% percent of the vote over Republican Timothy Mazzei. Lesko put together an outstanding field campaign team and an unrivaled team of consultants whose hard work helped to elect a strong fiscal reformer who will fight corrupt practices and save taxpayers' hard earned money.

Our strategy in Brookhaven was a continuation of our work in New York State over the past several cycles, helping Democrats regain office in tough, suburban and rural parts of the State. While we have experienced several victories in urban areas, it is our work in Upstate , the North County, and the Adirondacks that helped the New York Senate to regain majority control in Albany for the first time in forty years.
