THE PASSING OF ITS FOUNDER
Punta Gorda, FL
December 13, 2009
Winning Campaigns' Founder, Alan Locke passed away this morning in Florida, comforted by his family after a lengthy battle with cancer. He will be missed not only by his family and his many friends, but by an industry that he was dedicated to for many years.
Prior to creating Winning Campaigns, Alan Locke was Vice President of Operations and Consultant/Director of Political Training at Campaigns & Elections magazine in Washington, DC for eight years. Mr. Locke has also been publisher of Business Magazine, a chain of business-related magazines with circulation in excess of 100,000 in the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic regions.
During his distinguished career, Alan was associated with the late Ambassador William Colby, former director of Central Intelligence for the United States. He is a member of the Board of Directors and Treasurer of the National Leadership Forum on Global Affairs. In addition, he has been involved in a number of political campaigns on national and local levels including presidential, gubernatorial and down ballot. His clients have included Campaigns & Elections magazine, the National Leadership Forum on Global Affairs, Congressional Quarterly, Inc., KCI Publishing, Inc., the Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics, the United States Naval Reserve and the United States Coast Guard.
Alan and Betty Locke during happier times in Punta Gorda, Florida
Alan was a national speaker on Media Relations/Crisis Management and Political Campaigning and Management Techniques. He had been called upon as an analyst of the American political scene and on foreign affairs for international political, business and academic leaders. He had served as a television guest commentator on political matters for a national financial newsletter.
During his distinguished career, Mr. Locke was an editor and columnist for several newspapers and had also served as Director of Public Affairs for The Association of Trial Lawyers of America. He had been an Adjunct Professor of Management and Marketing Techniques, Media Relations and Public Relations at Boston University, Boston, MA; Trinity College, Washington, DC; Suffolk University School of Management, Boston, MA; The Washington (DC) Center and Northern Virginia Community College. Alan was a graduate of Boston University with a degree in Public Relations.
Alan Locke unofficially retired to Florida and from the industry in 2007, but to those who knew him well, he never really retired. In 2009, Alan\'s contribution to the industry was recognized by the American Association of Political Consultants, who currently maintain a scholarship in his honor.
Alan Locke is survived by, among others, his wife and partner, Betty Locke. We will all miss Alan and mourn his untimely passing.
We send our deepest condolences to Betty and the rest of the Locke family.
