The Political Nomad with Josh Gillespie Episode 14 feat. Richie Alicea
This week I'm back with my program and this week's guest is political consultant, Richie Alicea.
Richie is a rare breed these days. He’s a Republican (or consultant) with a conscience. I say that somewhat in jest as I have plenty of friends who are consultants, but Richie dares what few consultants do these days. He doesn’t stick to just one side. That is to say he’s been a part of races for Independent and Republican candidates, most recently with Joe Walsh in his primary challenge to Donald Trump. What’s that? You didn’t know that Donald Trump was primaried? Well, there’s a reason for that and maybe Richie can address it.
Richie holds a master’s degrees in Applied Politics from Fordham University and in Urban Planning from Hunter College. He’s been working in politics now for 15 years, including the last ten in digital politics, and has worked on races on all different levels including two presidential races. He’s currently the Digital Director for Stand Up Republic, a 501(c4) and is the founder of Great Lake Strategy, a digital engagement and strategy firm dedicated to bringing cutting edge tactics to candidates and organizations who will restore civility and pragmatism to politics.
