Mastering the Art of political creativity 

Politicom was founded 1978 in Baltimore by Ken Lorick, Bob Holmes and the firm's Managing Partner, Arthur W. Murphy - a pioneering election consultant and campaign manager who was a member of one of Baltimore's most prominent political families. 

One of five children of prominent civil rights activists William H. Murphy Sr. and Madeline W. Murphy, Arthur Murphy spent almost 40 years in the political trenches starting in 1970, when he managed his father's breakthrough victory in a race for a judgeship on Baltimore's then white-dominated Municipal Court. Over the years, Politicom would go on to run many winning political campaigns in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Among their clients were former Virginia Govs. L. Douglas Wilder and Chuck Robb, who later was a U.S. senator, and state Sen. John A. Pica Jr. Mayor Sheila Dixon said that she had known Mr. Murphy for a long time and that Politicom helped on several of her campaigns. They successfully ran the Conaway citywide campaigns, recently getting Belinda Conaway elected twice as Baltimore's Register of Wills, and currently represents clients in six different states.

Belinda K. Conaway, Register of Wills

Politicom is the firm I use for all my campaign and communications needs. From the days of Art Murphy, who helped my father and mother achieve great political success, to present day, and the uncanny abilities of their new managing team which created my entire communications strategy - including my television and radio PSAs; I've been blessed to have such tremendous professionals as my personal campaign firm.

Sheila Dixon, Former Baltimore City Mayor

I have the privilege to have worked with Politicom over the years, under both administrations; and the one constant was their overall production and professionalism that always led to creative solutions. Whether it was my early campaigns for city council, or my 2016 write-in candidacy for Mayor, Politicom rose to the occasion and offered quality services at affordable prices.
