NH Camps works with Deb Vanderbeek, a founding partner of Legislative Solutions, Inc.
In 2007, Vanderbeek was named the State Political Director for Governor Mike Huckabee’s New Hampshire Presidential campaign. Debra was instrumental in the final four weeks in Iowa where she took a dream and made it a reality at the Iowa straw poll. The campaign was widely recognized as one of the most effective grassroots campaigns in the nation.
From 2002 through 2006, Debra served as Chief of Staff for Congressman Jeb Bradley (NH-01). Prior to this position, she managed Congressman Bradley’s successful 2000 campaign for the open congressional seat vacated by Sen. Sununu.
Prior to working for Congressman Bradley, Ms. Vanderbeek had broad and successful public policy experience in energy, environment, tax, agriculture and consumer issues. In 1991 she established a public affairs consulting firm specializing in providing issues management, coalition building, government relations, community relations and media relations services to clients. She managed major accounts and staff for clients and worked successfully with federal and state legislators, local public officials, government agencies and interest groups to enable clients to achieve their public policy goals. Vanderbeek also managed numerous statewide and municipal ballot questions across the country on a variety of issues.
Prior to starting her own firm, Ms. Vanderbeek worked for BMC Strategies where she directed major client accounts and successful political campaigns. Before joining BMC, Vanderbeek was a government relations representative for the Washington, D.C. office of a multinational chemical company.
Ms. Vanderbeek is a magna cum laude graduate of Suffolk University where she majored in government and minored in communications.
