Testimonials

Here are some things that our clients have said about us…

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Maricopa County, Arizona

“There is no other organization I trust more than the Summit Group. Because of their polling accuracy, direct mail program and voter turnout operation, I was re-elected to an unprecedented fifth term in 2008. In 2009, Summit orchestrated a national fundraising campaign where I raised more than $1.2 million in just eight months. I highly recommend you hire Summit to get the job done – right.”

State Representative John Kavanagh, AZ District 8

“I ran for one of two state legislative seats in a heated five-way primary, which included one unbeatable incumbent. Summit designed a campaign strategy, including mail, phones, signs and direct voter contact, which resulted in my winning the nomination. In the general election, I sailed to victory.”

Scott Anderson, Chairman of Phoenix Property Rights Coalition

“When our neighborhood concerns regarding a zoning change were ignored by our elected officials, we turned to Summit to help us refer the Phoenix City Council’s decision to the ballot. In less than 20 days, Summit was able to supplement our volunteer signature effort by collecting almost 9,000 signatures from Phoenix residents. The City Clerk validated the signatures and certified the referendum which forced the City Council to reconsider and ultimately rescind the zoning change. Summit Consulting was professional, organized and thorough, delivering ahead of schedule and under budget. They exceeded our expectations.”

Charles Huellmantel, Huellmantel and Affiliates

“The Summit Group has been instrumental in our efforts to educate neighbors about upcoming zoning cases which affect their neighborhood. They are experienced, thorough and they get positive results.”

Chuck Coughlin, Highground

“We often find ourselves crunched for time on an important project. Summit Consulting Group is our go-to firm for getting a project done right and on time!”

State Representative Steve Yarbrough, AZ District 21

“When I found out there was going to be a heavily-funded independent expenditure campaign run against me by Big Labor and out of state special interest groups, I immediately called the Summit Group. They devised a last-minute strategy using phone banks, neighborhood canvassers and automated calls to get our message out. On election day, we were successful.”

Jason Powers, Managing Partner, Guidant Strategies

“The most reliable political telemarketing firm in the business. In November 2006 when my competition’s GOTV election calls couldn’t get out because of network congestion, mine made it through. Even my last minute response to an attack on my candidate on Election Day made it out. Thanks Summit!”

State Representative Debbie Lesko, AZ District 9

“I contacted the Summit Consulting Group about running my campaign for the state legislature. They put together an outstanding direct mail and phone program to combat a well-financed independent expenditure campaign against me. Not only did I win, I was the top vote-getter in the race.”

Arizona Business Aviation Association

“Our organization hired Summit Consulting Group to help us usher through a controversial measure before the Scottsdale City Council. While we had serious opposition from neighborhoods groups, Summit was able to successfully rally neighbors and business owners. In the end, the vote was unanimous in our favor!”

Suzanne Klapp, Scottsdale City Councilmember

“I contacted Chad Willems at Summit Consulting Group when I decided to run for Scottsdale City Council. He and his team were so helpful in raising money, securing endorsements and targeting voters in the election. Their polling on the issues and on the race were critical to my success in winning the November run-off. I even managed to beat an incumbent councilmember.”

Dan Sharp, Sharp Public Affairs

“Summit conducted a survey for one of my candidates in Northern California. The numbers they gave me as we approached the election cycle were dead-on accurate. Their survey played a key role in our victory.”
