Why You Need To Know Alex Sims – The Mover-and-Shaker In Chicago

By Dr. Sinclair N. Grey III

Let’s face it – politics isn’t something for weak people to participate in. That’s right; politics is about knowing issues, connecting with constituents, and partnering with the right people who are able to open doors. The old adage is correct within the political realm, ‘it’s not what you know, but who you know’ that will lead to success or disappointment.

In the city of Chicago, you have a diverse population. Even though the city gets a bad reputation because of violence happening and reported in the media, the truth of the matter is that there’s a lot of good in Chicago. In addition to that, change can happen when you know who to partner with.

Alex Sims is the person to know if you’re serious about running for politics in Chicago. The former executive with the Office of the City Treasurer in Chicago started APS and Associates, a full-service public affairs firm.

“The political strategist has spent the better part of her career connecting grassroots with grass tops to create a winning formula that successfully ensures that two-way dialogue and considerations are established between communities and elected officials,” according to Rolling Out.

In 2014, she registered the largest number of voters in four months. Her campaign was titled Every Vote Counts.

“A 2010 Northwestern graduate, CORO Fellowship recipient, and head of President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign in St. Louis, most are amazed at how quickly she’s been able to apply her special knack for helping to give a voice to urban, underserved constituents while opening the ears and minds of key public servants across the city.”

Without a doubt, Sims is the person to talk to in the city of Chicago. She is a mover-and-shaker and has the knowledge and skills to make things happen.
