"Using data from past elections, Eli kicked off our relationship by providing realistic expectations about the challenges we faced and the likelihood of success. He played an instrumental role in my successful campaign, serving as an effective analyst, strategist, tactician, and coach.
As part of his analysis, Eli provided a precinct-by-precinct roadmap to prioritize our efforts. Then, on every day for the last two months of the campaign, he sent a new list of doors to knock along with a motivating “See if you can get through this whole turf this afternoon!” text. Eli was always available, responded quickly to questions, proactively pointed out problems and opportunities, and changed direction when necessary. His guidance, directness, and quiet persistence – along with a lot of hard work, door knocking, and other marketing activity from our campaign team – paid off.
I would absolutely work with Eli again, and highly recommend him as a campaign consultant."
Carolyn "Lyn" Campbell, McHenry County Board Member, District 3
After being appointed to the McHenry County Board in February 2022, Carolyn "Lyn" Campbell won election to the Board on November 8, 2022. She was the highest vote-getter in her Republican-leaning district, receiving more votes than each of the two Republicans running against her.
"I was redistricted into a tough new area where the odds of me being re-elected to my County Board seat were small. Eli Brottman helped me win by thoroughly analyzing my new district and helping me target my campaign efforts. Eli was an amazing asset to my campaign, helping with strategy, focus, and especially my door-knocking campaign. His knowledge of the voter database, how to use it to win, and creating a complete door-knocking campaign helped me win my race. I will be contracting with Eli for my future election campaigns because he is willing to jump in to help in any way with his great ideas."
Kelli Wegener, McHenry County Board Member, District 5
"The DeKalb County Democrats utilized Eli Brottman's services and we couldn't be happier with what we received. Our county had a one week turnaround between the presentation of possible new maps and voting on them. In that short time Eli analyzed all three maps giving us a better understanding of how they would affect our county allowing our county board members to come to a well informed decision. We couldn't have done it without him and will definitely use him again for analysis in the future."
