Oliver is one of the best organizers I've worked with in New York and, frankly, I can't think of even one person more effective than him. During the 2010 election cycle, we asked Oliver to coordinate visits to Plattsburgh. He did such a great job on the first visit that we gave him complete control of subsequent trips to the region. Oliver is the kind of guy you can assign a task and not worry a bit until deadline - because he does it right, on time and with great results.

Oliver is an exemplary political operative and master campaign manager. I’ve seen him in action with UNYTEA where he was instrumental in organizing a campaign for Get Out The Vote, planning and logistics to host gubernatorial candidates, and petition drives for Congressional candidates. He is a proven, well-rounded professional with keen analytic and communication skills. His trustworthiness is beyond question and his professionalism unmatched even when challenged with the most daunting tasks during periods of heightened operational tempo.
