MV Strategies and the Election Connection

According to bizapedia:

MV Strategies LLC is a New Jersey Foreign Limited-Liability Company filed On July 7, 2020. The company’s filing status is listed as Active and its File Number is 450510055. The Registered Agent on file for this company is Legalinc Corporate Services Inc. and is located at 301 Route 17 North Suite 800 No. 12-40, Rutherford, NJ 07070. The company’s mailing address is PO Box 39104, Washington, DC 20016. The company has 2 contacts on record. The contacts are Megan Brown from Washington DC and Megan V Brown from Washington DC.

So what did Union County pay MV Strategies LLC $750,000 in Covid money for? According to one line of reasoning, to defeat Donald Trump.

There is also a Megan V. Brown associated with a 501(c)(4) organization called Take Back Control which was “started in April 2020 as a resource to help Americans take back control of their lives by providing essential information related to COVID-19.” Quite an undertaking but the folks there found the time to set up a facebook page focused on beating Trump in Wisconsin with updates through November 3, 2020.

As for the Washington DC PO Box 39104 that happens to be the same one used by Craig S. HolmanGovernment Affairs Lobbyist and, from the Federal Election Commission website, for political donations made by Megan V. Brown including to William Pascrell:

Field Strategies is a national Democrat activist organization with Senator Bob Menendez on their front page and NJDems as a partner.

Camden County also awarded MV Strategies LLC $280,109 post election – November 12, 2020:

To summarize, Union County hired MV Strategies LLC,, a “civic engagement consulting firm” with no employees that exists in New Jersey only on paper. MV’s parent is based in a PO Box in Washington, DC and its sole listed employee in all roles is Megan V Brown (Megan V=MV). MV DC was founded prior to the pandemic, in February, 2019, but has no online presence I could find and Megan V. Brown is also the Managing Director of the GOTV firm Field Strategies. Could it be that, given the lack of transparency in how covid money is being spent, Union County tax money helped flip an election. Biden won Wisconsin by 20,000 votes.

Next blog, when the video of last Thursday’s commissioner meeting is uploaded here, we will get the official county take on all this as Bruce Paterson brought it up in a manner that Chair Williams labelled “scurrilous”.

    The commissioners (aka freeholders) paid union county finance director Bibi Taylor’s husband’s law firm $350,000 as a “third party” to make sure expenditures of the Cares act Covid monies met criteria and were distributed appropriately. From January 5, 2021 union county commish agenda which of course commish mirabella had his fingers pushing this expenditure, could be certain parties involved to avoid any scrutiny: 2021-33 CHAIRMAN ALEXANDER MIRABELLA: Amending Resolution 2020-918 dated
    December 10, 2020 to increase the appropriation to Florio, Perrucci, Steinhardt,
    Capelli, Tipton & Taylor, LLC, of New Providence, NJ, for Special Legal services
    related to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES ACT”)
    in the amount not to exceed $100,000.00 for a total contract amount not to exceed
    $350,000.00.

  2. […] If, in fact, this ordinance is where the $400,000 in hush money came from then there should be a total overhaul of Clark governance, and not by the county which has its own issues with transparency where spending taxpayer money is concerned. […]

  3. […] It remains a mystery as to what MV Strategies did to earn their $750k but Civic Operations Group apparently does the same door-to-door outreach, while the first thing that pops up when you bing ES&S is about elections, which might be what a good deal of this covid money funded. […]
