Jack Campbell is one of the founding partners of Public Strategy Associates, LLC. He has been in and around politics since 1982 when he began his career as a field service representative for Folmar for Governor of Alabama.
In 1984, Jack was a fundraiser for the Republican Party of Texas in Austin. In 1986, he worked for friends of Guy Hunt, the first Republican governor of Alabama since Reconstruction.
Jack was a lobbyist for the Texas Association of School Administrators from 1990 to 1993. In 1994, he was campaign director for Judge Perry Hooper who became Alabama’s first Republican elected Supreme Court chief justice. From 1995 to 2000, Jack was the public information officer for the Alabama Unified Judicial System.
In 2001, Jack moved back to Austin to serve as a lobbyist for the Texas Association of Business. In that capacity, Jack was also the PAC director for TAB’s Business & Commerce Political Action Committee (BACPAC). In the 2002 election cycle, Jack spearheaded a $2 million direct mail “voter education” effort in Texas targeting 22 House districts and winning 19 of those seats, effectively flipping the Texas House from Democrat to Republican in one cycle.
In 2006, Jack returned to Montgomery, Alabama and joined Dan Martin in establishing Strategic Resource Group. SRG consulted with several winning candidates, including State Representative Allen Treadaway and Civil Appeals Judge Terry Moore. In October 2007, Jack and Brent Buchanan founded Public Strategy Associates.
