   Representative John McGinnis 



“Succeeding in a primary challenge to a 17-term incumbent fully backed by party establishment and then winning a tough general election could not and would not have happened without Rockwood Strategies.” Representative John McGinnis who defeated 34-year incumbent Representative Rick Geist in the 2012 Primary Election.


Representative Cris Dush

"I had initially underestimated the political machine's willingness to pour vast amounts of money at keeping me out. Though we were hugely out-spent, Ryan knew exactly where we needed to focus our efforts and the limited assets we had available. The results speak for themselves." State Representative Cris Dush who defeated the retiring Speaker of the House’s hand-picked candidate in the 2014 Republican primary.

Ryan was on top of my race from the very beginning and knew what needed to be done to win." 2015 Magisterial District Judge Candidate Anthony Bompiani.

        Amber Anstine Kraft for Judge

"Ryan made sure that I ignored all of the outside distractions that came with running for office and stayed concentrated on our goals.  Otherwise, the campaign could have strayed in different directions and lost focus.  His dedication and strategy were pivotal."   Amber Anstine Kraft on her successful 2017 campaign for the Court of Common Pleas in York County.

   Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania
