Elected Councilman

Case Study: Councilman Clint Olivier

The Problem

Clint Olivier was a news anchor for Fresno stations KMPH Fox 26 and ABC30 Action News. Since he didn’t have a history in politics, he was not the obvious first choice for most. But that did not make him any less worthy of consideration. Olivier had a great understanding of the needs in his local community. He also had great vision to make change and the leadership skills required to do so.

While he wanted to run for the Fresno City Council district 7 position, his Republican Party had already endorsed someone else.

The Plan

Despite obvious opposition, Carter & Co Communications would help Clint Olivier by introducing him to the right people within the City of Fresno and secure endorsements from those of great influence. They also handled all fundraising from events to cold calling and helped to organize his campaign.

The Result

Even though Clint Olivier did not have the endorsement of his own republican party, he had secured his spot as City Council District 7 through landslide votes in just the primary election. This was largely a result of the networking and grassroots organization tactics brought to the table by Carter & Co. Communications.
