Isaac Salazar is the founder of Local Politechs Strategies.
Isaac considers himself an “accidental techie.” His passion for tech comes from always asking, “how can we leverage technology to make this better?” What was once a casual interest has turned into experience as a digital strategist and extensive knowledge of content management systems, customer relationship management systems, email marketing, online advertising, and web analytics.
After graduating from St. Mary’s College of Maryland, Isaac got his first “real world” job as a field organizer for Chris Van Hollen’s first congressional campaign in 2002. Since then, Isaac has worked on several political campaigns and has worked in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate for U.S Senator Ben Cardin and U.S. Senator Paul Sarbanes.
Isaac has also worked for Enterprise Community Partners, a national non-profit affordable housing organization, where he developed the organization’s social media presence and its first-ever social media strategy. In the 2010 election cycle Salazar teamed up with the Maryland Democratic Party as its first New Media Director, where he worked to reelect Maryland Democratic candidates.
In 2011, Isaac joined Hager Sharp, a communications firm with a mission: to help people live healthier, smarter, safer lives. Salazar provided digital strategy for Hager Sharp to support its health, education and public safety clients with “communications that make a difference.”
Isaac is involved with a number of associations and organization including Social Media Club-D.C., NetSquared D.C., the Hispanic Democratic Club of Montgomery County, Young Democrats of Maryland, Montgomery County Young Democrats, and the St. Mary’s College of Maryland Alumni Association (Washington D.C. and Baltimore Chapters). In addition to blogging at localpolitechs.com, “Ike” blogs about pop culture at Ike’s Likes & Dislikes.
If you can’t tell from his cover photo, Isaac is also a big Baltimore Orioles fan.
