Jamestown Associates Names Jason Miller as Partner and Executive Vice President

Jason and Rudy Jamestown Associates, a nationally acclaimed, full-service political consulting and public affairs firm specializing in television/radio advertising, direct mail, and strategic communications, today announced that Jason Miller has joined the firm as a Partner and Executive Vice President.  Jason will be servicing clients across the country, and will manage Jamestown’s Washington, DC office, effective immediately.

Jason brings more than a decade of national political and press experience to Jamestown, having managed campaigns and shaped messages for successful House, Senate, and gubernatorial races in California, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Florida.  He also has worked as a staffer in both chambers of Capitol Hill, most recently as Chief of Staff to former Florida Congressman Ric Keller.

In the 2008 election cycle, Jason served as National Deputy Communications Director on the presidential campaign of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, where he oversaw the campaign’s rapid response and surrogate speaker efforts.

“Jason brings a unique background of winning campaigns and successful public affairs battles to Jamestown, and we’re excited to welcome him to our team,” said firm CEO Larry Weitzner.  “Not only does Jason have campaign expertise in more than a half-dozen states across the country, but his experience in the field of crisis communications will be an added asset for all of our clients.”

Most recently, Jason served as a Senior Vice President for a nationally recognized high-stakes communications firm, where he specialized in counseling companies, trade associations, and prominent individuals facing crisis and extreme scrutiny. He also helped clients design and implement successful high-stakes public affairs campaigns at both the state and federal levels. 

A native of Seattle, Washington, he graduated from The George Washington University in Washington, DC.  Jason lives in Washington, DC with his wife Kelly and their fifteen month-old daughter Sydney.
