TESTIMONIALS

 

Local Government

Brighton Crossings Metropolitan District

“I had a very positive working relationship for several months with Sean Walsh on a metropolitan district campaign project in Brighton Crossings in 2021. Sean was always responsive, organized and really put his nose to the grindstone. He was completely trustworthy – and didn’t hesitate to do what was necessary for success. His hard work really paid off in the final tally of votes.”

Geol Scheirman

Pinnacle Consulting Group

St. Vincent Hospital District

“Our campaign committee contacted Sean Walsh for his help just 10 weeks before a critical mill-levy increase election to save St. Vincent Hospital in Leadville. I was immediately impressed with how capably Sean created a compelling message and kept us focused, and informed our group’s successful voter contact efforts. Our 20-point margin of victory – exactly the opposite result of our committee’s defeat one year prior – was due in large part to Sean’s valuable contributions.”

Dennis Johnson

St. Vincent Hospital District Board Chairman

Scientific and Cultural Facilities District 

“Sean co-managed an important Colorado ballot initiative in 2016 to a 63% victory.  He is a seasoned Colorado operative with a wide array of relationships across the state.  His political acumen is sharp and his team building skills – he knows when to lead and when to follow – are exemplary.”

Floyd Ciruli

President, Circuli and Associates

City of Littleton

“For five months in 2021, Sean Walsh and his team planned and executed a top-notch citizen engagement and research project to help senior staff and City Council message the need for a sales tax rate increase later that fall. 

 

“From start to finish, Sean exceeded my every expectation. He’s smart, experienced and very hands-on. Our nearly twenty-point margin of victory was the result of a lot of tact, creativity and doggedness. Sean really came through for us.”

Mark Relph

City Manager

Thompson School District

“Sean’s management expertise, calm demeanor, positive attitude and wealth of campaign knowledge made him an exceptional leader for Thompson School District’s successful bond and mill levy effort.”

Pam Howard,

Board of Education member 

Crested Butte Fire Protection District 

“In 2021 our District was interested in pursuing a major bond initiative for new facilities. Having limited experience with public engagement and polling, Sean Walsh came highly recommended to us. Sean and his colleagues helped us to manage the process and obtain a thorough understanding of our local political landscape.

 

“Sean worked closely with our board members and staff to ensure the politics of the issue were considered with diligence and intention. His ability to help us navigate rural, small-town and hyper-local issues was also much appreciated.

 

“In the end our voters approved the measure by a substantial margin and we were grateful for Sean’s expert assistance.”

Sean Caffrey

CEO and Commissioner 

Town of Breckenridge

On behalf of the Town of Breckenridge, Sean worked with City Council members and senior staff to strengthen their position for a new parking and transit plan in the community – an outreach and strategic communication effort that laid the groundwork for a successful campaign for a new ski area admissions tax in November, 2015.

Land Use 

“Over the last twenty years I have partnered with Sean on four separate controversial land uses issues in Weld and Larimer Counties. In each case, despite some very robust political headwinds, our clients’ projects prevailed – in large part because of Sean’s contributions on the strategic communication and public education front. Sean really goes all in for his clients and his team. He is my “go-to” partner for community engagement and communication.”

Tom Haren

President and CEO, AgProfessionals

“Sean worked wonders for a developer client whose proposed gravel extraction project faced strong community opposition in Weld County. He tactfully and calmly advised our client, managed the community education effort, handled the news media and ultimately directed the victorious effort at the ballot box to preserve our client’s property rights.”

PE, President, Galloway and Company, Inc.

“Sean Walsh has a special talent for getting his head around an issue quickly, earning the trust of the people involved, keeping the team singing from the same song sheet and staying laser-focused on the path for success.”

Candidates

“As the manager of my first campaign for political office, Sean leveraged his extensive contacts among grassroots networks, elected officials and the news media – all of which gave us a fighting chance in a competitive primary. At every turn during the campaign, Sean had a knack for combining the right mix of diligence, passion and professionalism to advance the ball for our team.”

Colorado State Treasurer Candidate Lang Sias

“Sean served as campaign manager for the final twelve weeks of our 2010 challenger race in Colorado’s Third Congressional District. Sean immediately inspired a lot of confidence with his steady hand, his good humor and, most importantly, his firm grasp of the fundamentals of running a successful campaign.”

Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) 2011-2021

“Sean Walsh was my top strategist when I ran for Denver City Council in 2015.  Though he was working on multiple races that cycle, Sean made the time to be there when we needed him – knocking on doors, putting up yards signs and even sticking stamps on envelopes at midnight. Sean is motivated by winning and will go the extra mile for his clients’ success.”

Denver City Councilwoman Kendra Black (2015-2023)

“Sean’s strategic and tactical advice was instrumental in my successful campaigns for Aurora Mayor in 2011 and 2015. Sean has earned a well-deserved reputation as smart, hard-working, conscientious and earnestly devoted to his clients’ success.”
