Fleck Consulting of Allentown and WS Group of Harrisburg merged to form Seven Points Consulting.
Together, they will work on Democratic campaigns across the state, providing fundraising, mail, communications, and strategy.
Fleck Consulting was started by then-Easton City Councilman Michael Fleck and his wife Alison, who serve as two of the four principals for Seven Points. As Campaign Manager, Fleck has run successful campaigns for Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski, Reading Mayor Vaughn Spencer, State Representative Dan McNeill, and most recently, for Lehigh County Executive Tom Muller.
Most recently, Fleck Consulting ran the short gubernatorial campaign of Pawlowski.
“We are excited to join forces with such a well-respected company,” said Fleck. “Their client list is impressive, and we look forward to working together with them.”
The WS Group, LLC was started by Kevin Sidella and John Jones in 2007, the two other principals of Seven Points. The WS Group, LLC has successfully guided numerous Democrats to victory including Auditor General Eugene DePasquale, and most recently they played a pivotal role in Eric Papenfuse’s surprise victory in the Harrisburg Mayor’s race. In addition, the WS Group is one of the largest direct mail firms in Pennsylvania.
“Fleck Consulting and the WS Group have both had tremendous success in electing more Democrats in Pennsylvania,” said Jones. “Working together through Seven Points, Democratic candidates will finally have a one-stop shop that can guide them through their toughest electoral challenges.”
