Joshua Price, Co-founder

Joshua Price is a part-time political consultant and college student. He consults primarily on state and local campaigns.

Joshua began his active involvement in politics in 2002. He volunteered for a Georgia House of Representatives campaign where he worked with other volunteers on grassroots level campaign tactics–distributing campaign signs and making get-out-the-vote calls to registered voters.

After volunteering, Joshua’s political career began by consulting for and managing two county level campaigns during the 2004 primary election. His duties and responsibilities included strategic planning, co-ordinating and manging volunteers, allocating campaign signs and identifying sign locations, conducting opposition research, and various campaign organizational tasks.

Joshua is committed to advocating and advancing the traditional conservative principles America was founded upon: a belief in, and commitment to, God, the preservation and promotion of the traditional family, and the unwavering defense of this great nation. He is also passionate about helping bring transparency to the political and campaign process. To this end, Joshua brings an untraditional approach to the political consulting business by emphasizing his clients as hopeful representatives of the people, and not “products” to marketed to “consumers” (voters). Moreover, he views his position as a serious responsibility in the process of our republican form of government and to the conservative movement, and therefore he will not consult for any candidate who he would not vote for.

Joshua is a native Atlantan and has lived in Georgia for 25 years. He currently lives near Atlanta. He holds an Associate Degree in Business Administration from Gainesville State College, and is pursuing his Bachelor’s Degree in Management.
