INSPIRE. INFORM. IMAGINE.
“A Louisiana politician can’t afford to let his animosities carry him away, and still less his principles, although there is seldom difficulty in that department.” – A.J. Liebling, The Earl of Louisiana, 1961
We are Louisiana’s only full-service firm exclusively specializing in policy, candidate, opposition, and political research; messaging; content development, and strategic communications for individuals, campaigns, non-profit organizations, municipalities, and government agencies.
Our mission is simple: We seek to ensure that elected officials, policymakers, citizen advocates, and candidates for office are armed with the most important tool they can possibly possess, the truth.
The truth is not always easy to ascertain in Louisiana, a state that often seems sadistically proud of its penchant for public corruption and obfuscation, but when our leaders, our policymakers, our activists, and our candidates neglect to inform themselves of the truth- the facts– on any given issue, we ensure a less transparent, less principled, and less democratic government.
“(This bill) will take the state of Louisiana from sunshine to moonshine.” -Former State Sen. Robert Adley, 2008
At Imagine Louisiana, we possess the technological tools, the institutional knowledge, the experience, and the personal networks required to transubstantiate moonshine back into sunshine.
For more than a decade, working entirely on his own and for free, Lamar exclusively broke some of the biggest and most shocking stories about Louisiana politicians and issues in recent years:
There are countless others: Stories about a U.S. Congressman failing to file time-sheets with his employer, LSU, which raised interesting questions about collusion and allegations of payroll fraud; stories about the ways in which Louisiana’s most powerful lobbying group allegedly attempted to subsidize its activities by transferring more than $100,000 in tax-deductible charitable donations to its newly-formed and not tax-deductible “social advocacy” group, and stories about self-appointed prophets of God attempting to collect $400,000 a year in voucher funds.
OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE, AND SO IS OUR MOTTO:
DO YOUR HOMEWORK
OR, IF YOU PREFER,
LET US DO YOUR HOMEWORK
Imagine Louisiana has already assembled an incredibly talented and accomplished team, three people with law degrees, all with extensive political experience, all with a sharp understanding of politics and policy, and perhaps most importantly, all with a robust knowledge of the places and the people that define and animate all corners of the Great State of Louisiana.
So, why do I need Imagine Louisiana?
Imagine Louisiana is not a political ad agency or a private investigation firm. We are not campaign managers or field directors or political directors or even communications directors. We are not chief of staffs. The three of us, together, are your chief information officers. We are your eyes in the sky and your ears on the ground. On the issues that matter most, we strive to ensure that our clients are the most informed and the most knowledgeable candidates, officials, advocates, organizations, and agencies in the nation.
Imagine Louisiana has proprietary access to the most powerful informational search tools in the world, software exponentially more robust and exponentially quicker than a simple Google search. This enables us to provide you with a comprehensive report on any issue, any person, and any media trends faster and more accurate than anyone else. All three members of our leadership team have degrees in the law from two of the nation’s top tier universities. Two of us, Lamar and Erin, spent years serving on the highest levels of municipal government. Lamar was special assistant for the Mayor of Alexandria; Erin was Chief of Staff for a New Orleans Councilman. For what we do, there is no other team in Louisiana as qualified, educated, and experienced as Imagine Louisiana.
What Do We Do?
Put simply, we add value, insight, and data.
Imagine Louisiana recognizes that no two clients are the same, but when it comes to research, we do just about everything- from simple background checks to 200-page white papers on legal history, from opposition research to communications analysis and advice, from press releases to speechwriting, from developing public outreach strategies to spearheading product and program launch initiatives. We have the skills, the experience, and the resources to add value, insight, and data to a wide-range of projects.
Pricing varies based on the scope of the project, but most projects begin at $5,000, though no project is too small or too big.
