What our clients say:
Sangeeth Peruri, CEO and Founder of VoterCircle
"We work with hundreds of campaigns all over the country every single year, and Dylan stands out as one of the most creative, smart field strategists we've worked with. In fact, we asked him to write a manual to teach Field Directors around the country how to build successful, data-driven relational organizing programs, and he is one of the first people I call to talk through how to implement a new feature in our platform, test a new tactic, or brainstorm how to build successful field programs."
Cindy Martinez, Project Manager at Think Together
“Dylan Cate Strategic is friendly, fast & reliable! Dylan took steps to ensure he thoroughly understood our organization, issue, and needs. He was very collaborative in designing a strategic organizing approach for our advocacy efforts, and sought and accepted feedback continually. It was a pleasure to work with Dylan. Thank you for your attention to detail and continuous communication!”
Tina Podlodowski, Chair of Washington State Democratic Party
“When I became Chair of the Washington State Democratic Party in 2017, we made the commitment to rebuild our party and fight in every race, in every place, after years of lackluster grassroots efforts. I knew I needed a partner who could design and build the organizing program to make that commitment a reality — and Dylan was the first person I called. Dylan's creativity, long-term strategic thinking, and ability to bring out the best in staff and volunteers was exactly what we needed to build the organizing program of our party's future. Together, we accomplished a lot of firsts: we hired year-round organizing staff and knocked doors in every single county in an off year, ran candidates and built organizing operations in deep red districts for the first time in decades, and turned slim majorities into near-super majorities by electing the most diverse group of democrats ever to the Washington state legislature. Dylan was a key part of those successes, and helping build the Washington State Democratic party of the future."
Shasti Conrad, Chair of Martin Luther King County Democrats
“Dylan Cate Strategic facilitated a fantastic planning meeting for the King County Democrats. With Dylan's well-thought agenda for the day and his kind, upbeat guidance we were able to maximize our time together to work better as a team and to plan for the rest of the year. Dylan's work helped us to take the org from good to great! Thanks Dylan!”
Kyle Layman, Western States Political Director, DCCC 2018 Cycle
"Dylan's background allows him to bring a unique approach to field and organizing. He brings new ideas to bear, and designs creative and rigorous programs to take on tough field challenges. I managed a congressional race in which we were outspent by our opponent significantly, but Dylan's relationship-based field strategy kept us in the game through the primary, and made us competitive in the general. Plus, he's a lot of fun to work with!"
Adam Seiden, Principal, All Day Strategic Consulting
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with Dylan Cate. I consistently find him to be insightful, methodical and creative, with an ever-optimistic disposition. His talents are a major asset to any project that he sets his sights on and I wholeheartedly look forward to working together with him on many campaigns to come.”
