      John has directed more than 200 political campaigns over the last 25 years. He has one of the best win records in California, guiding candidates and ballot measures to victory throughout the state.

      John has helped hospitals, schools, colleges and transportation systems secure billions of dollars in public finance measures at the ballot. He has managed successful independent expenditure campaigns for labor and business interests and led groundbreaking candidate campaigns.

      John has helped candidates win at every level of government, including Santa Clara Supervisor Susan Ellenberg, Supervisor Catherine Stefanie, former San Francisco Mayor Willie L. Brown, Jr., former State Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera, California Governor Jerry Brown and former State Senators Mark Leno and Noreen Evans. Prior to co-founding Whitehurst/Mosher, John started Whitehurst Campaigns and worked at Clinton Reilly Campaigns. His first professional political campaign was Gary Hart for President in 1984 where he learned to organize in Iowa, Pennsylvania and California.

      John holds a Bachelors Degree in Political Science from American University. John loves all things Italian — from traveling to Italy to enjoying Italian food and wine. Currently, he is learning how to play the guitar.

        Our commitment
        to every campaign

        We don’t work in bulk and we don’t do off-the-shelf. Instead, we take on a few campaigns that we care about and dedicate the time it takes to win. The principals in our firm work directly with our clients on a regular basis, meaning you will have senior expertise directly involved in all aspects of your campaign – which translates into unmatched value and accountability. Unlike other firms that are primarily direct mail companies, we have many strategic tools in the toolbox and have proven expertise with each. This ensures you get the highly customized campaign you need to win.

        Our core values

        Personal Attention

        Next

        At BMWL Campaigns, each campaign is deserving of the personal attention of our partners and dedicated staff. We are selective about the clients we take to ensure our principals and senior staff members have time to do the work ourselves. For these reasons, BMWL is able to consistently deliver results, value and accountability.
