The Political Scientist as Local Campaign Consultant
Crew, Robert E., Jr.
PS: Political Science and Politics, v44 n2 p273-278 Apr 2011
During my 45 years as an academic, I have followed the admonition sometimes attributed to the legendary Jedi warrior Obi-Wan Kenobe that political scientists should "use [their] power for good and not for evil." In this spirit, I have devoted substantial portions of my career to public service by providing strategic advice and campaign management to candidates for small state and local elective offices--state legislature, county commission, city clerk or treasurer, school board, and the like--and supporters of citizen ballot initiatives. These campaigns generally cannot afford the professional campaign assistance that is now virtually a necessity for winning elections at all levels of government. (Contains 1 note.)
