Consultants win awards for “Campaign for Pike Road Independence”


 The American Association of Political Consultants honored the successful “Campaign for Pike Road Independence” and its consultants with two awards during its recent convention in Austin, Texas.
The Mowery Consulting Group, based in Montgomery, and Zata|3 received Gold Pollie Awards at the 2012 Pollie Awards banquet, which honors the best work from the previous year in political advertising and communications.
The Mowery Consulting Group received the gold award for the Automated Calls - GOTVcategory for “Bradley,” which featured the son of the chairman of the political action committee encouraging the citizens of Pike Road to vote in support of school taxes.
Zata|3, a firm with offices in Mississippi and Washington, D.C., won the gold award for Overall Phone/Field category for the call program “A New School For Pike Road.” At Mowery’s direction, Zata|3 assembled and executed the program.
The Mowery Consulting Group is led by political consultant David Mowery, who managed the 2008 congressional campaign of Bobby Bright and the 2009 mayoral campaign of Todd Strange.
“This was not an easy campaign, and these awards are much deserved,” said Mike Hicks, chairman of the Patriot PAC. “This is a conservative area, even for a conservative state – and we are in a recession. Convincing people to raise their own taxes is never easy, but Dave and the other consultants did a great job.”

Mowery Consulting and Zata|3 have worked together on several successful Alabama campaigns including the 2008 Bright campaign, both of Strange’s successful campaigns for mayor of Montgomery, and the 2010 campaigns for state Sen. Billy Beasley, D-Clayton, and state Reps. Richard Lindsey, D-Centre, and Lesley Vance of Phenix City, who won as a Democrat and switched parties soon after the election.
