From the train to the State Capitol, back on the train, off to Philadelphia City Council to “live Tweet” a hearing, before heading to Montgomery County for a meeting, iPad and boundless energy firmly in tow.  Such is the non-stop world of one of Triad Strategies’ brightest young stars, Dave Kralle.

Dave comes to Triad’s Philadelphia office after working for the PA House of Representatives in the office of former Speaker Dennis O’Brien and later for Philadelphia City Council.  In 2012, Dave ran for State Representative.   Dave also consulted on numerous state and local campaigns in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Without question, he is best known for implementing an aggressive outreach agenda while working for Speaker O’Brien.  He was literally a fixture at every neighborhood civic association meeting within the district, including the 8th Police District Advisory Council and Community Court.  Dave also helped to secure millions of dollars in state grants to assist local youth and senior groups.  He worked closely with the Mural Arts Program on the Officer John Pawlowski mural painted at Parkwood Youth Organization, where it stands as a constant reminder of the sacrifices our men and women in blue make every day.

At Triad Strategies, Dave represents clients from small non-profits to Fortune 500 companies.  He has been in the trenches on issues like paid sick leave, and the most recently, increasing state aid to the Philadelphia School District.  Dave’s networking skills and uncanny ability to be five places at once have made him into Triad’s eyes and ears in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Dave has a Bachelors Degree in Political Science from Temple University, and a Masters of Public Administration from the University of Pennsylvania.   He graduated from Our Lady of Calvary Grade School and Archbishop Ryan High School where he was the class Salutatorian. He now sits on the Ryan Alumni Board.

Dave previously served as the In-House Baseball director at Calvary Athletic Association and was a member of the Chalfont Town Watch where he served as treasurer. He is a lector at Our Lady of Calvary, a member of the Knights of Columbus and the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Division 17. He recently accepted an appointment to the board of the Friends of the Free Library of Philadelphia. Dave resides in Northeast Philadelphia, and you can follow him on Twitter @DaveKralle.
