A firm with a record of delivering results for clients ranging from major progressive organizations and non-profits to congressional candidates and prime ministers. In 2015, Feldman was recognized for his work and named a “Rising Star” by Campaigns and Elections magazine – a prestigious honor for up-and-coming political professionals.

 

Currently, Feldman works with progressive organizations to move their agenda forward on a national stage. He specializes in breaking through crowded media landscapes and the 24-hour news cycle to ensure these organizations’ stories are heard.

 

He is proud to work with leading labor unions including the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), where he uses his expertise to enhance the media coverage and public relations strategy of both women led organizations.

 

In addition to his work with organized labor, Feldman is privileged to advise and execute media relations and communications strategy for a number of other progressive organizations, including Planned Parenthood, Michigan Democratic Party, Committee to Protect Health Care, Democracy Forward, and Rock the Vote.

 

Additionally, during the 2016 primaries Feldman worked with SEIU, one of the largest unions in the country, to develop and execute the earned media strategy around their primary independent expenditure program.

 

Prior to founding Feldman Strategies, Feldman served as the Political Director to John Delaney’s 2012 congressional campaign, one of the most competitive congressional races in the country that year. Feldman’s work played a large part in the resulting victory, which unseated a 20-year Republican incumbent. Before serving as the Delaney campaign’s political director, Feldman spent several years working on campaigns ranging from city council to the presidency of the United States. He also worked in government, most notably doing advance work for the Office of the Vice President and in the private sector for Devine Mulvey and Rasky Baerlein Strategic Communication, leading media and public relations firms.

 

Feldman is a frequent political commentator and can be seen regularly as a Democratic Strategist on Fox Business and The Hill TV. He graduated from The George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs with a BA in Political Communication and lives in Washington, DC with his wife Megan and their Havanese dog, Nash.
