Brendan Klein and Will Deegan met in 2013 while working on a city council race in Eastern Queens. They quickly realized that their working techniques and approach were complimentary to each other and that they had similar philosophies on what makes a winning campaign. Thus North Shore Strategies was born and since its inception has been involved and contributed to many successful campaigns all across the greater New York City area.

North Shore Strategies prides itself in representing men and women of character and integrity who aim to bring about positive change and whose personal values align with its own.
