Adam Erickson uses his experience in managing, field-work, and fundraising to give political campaigns a winning structure that produces high level results. Before starting Princeton Strategies, LLC, Adam worked on a number of political races throughout NY, NJ, MD, PA, & VA. In 2014 he worked for Congressman Frank Pallone’s (NJ-6) in his race for Ranking Member of the Energy and Commerce Committee. Adam had previously worked for Congressman Pallone as his Regional Field Director for Pallone’s campaign for US Senate in 2013. After that primary, Adam moved to PA to manage, then State Representative, Brendan Boyle’s Campaign for Congress. Although it was reported that Boyle was down in the polls by over 30 points to a very well know former Congresswoman, Boyle went on to win decisively in the Primary and is now the current congressman of PA-13.
Along with receiving much national attention for his work for Congressman Boyle, Congressman Frank Pallone, and Congressman Charles Rangel, Adam received an award for #1 Grassroots Campaign in the Nation from the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee’s as the Campaign Manager for a special election State Assembly race in New Jersey in 2012. He understands the need for professional level campaigns not just for federal office, but at the state, county, and municipal level.
Along with campaigns, Adam has a passion for non-profits. He has worked with many organizations on creating a fundraising strategy. In 2011 he was on the steering committee that opened Agape Health Clinic in rural Pratt, KS. Now in its 5th year, the structure and financial plan Adam helped to create has made this 501C3 a vital part of the community, providing monthly free health care for uninsured individuals. After working with community leaders and healthcare providers to open the clinic, he was voted onto the Board of Directors and served for one term.
With a proven track record of successful planning and execution, along with dedication and experience in campaigning, Adam provides oversight and structure to ensure clients have a campaign they are proud of and a campaign that wins.
