It is the mission of Lone Star Campaigns to offer affordable consulting options to liberty-minded campaigns across Texas in hopes of maintaining our freedoms in this great state.
Lone Star Campaigns offers campaign consulting to the people of Texas. Lone Star Campaigns was organized recently in 2018 to meet the financial needs of liberty-minded candidates with great messages to sell, but limited resources and understanding as to how to begin.
Chelsea Meckel is a campaign consultant and owner of Lone Star Campaigns. Chelsea started her career in 2011, and since then has established a successful track-record of helping candidates obtain campaign media coverage in even the most contested races. She has also created, implemented, and moderated successful social media strategies for political campaigns.
Most recently (2018) Chelsea served as the Director of Communication for the Libertarian nominee for United States Senate, Neal Dikeman. This campaign was one of the few Libertarian campaigns to repeatedly receive the attention of state-wide media, even in what was quite possibly the most contested race in the state of Texas. Before working with Neal Dikeman, she was the Central-Texas Coordinator for the Kathie Glass for Texas Governor campaign during the surfacing/convention stage. Chelsea has also helped manage the social media accounts for other campaigns, as well as other elected Texas officials.
Chelsea received her Master of Arts in 2016 from Texas State University in Communication Studies with emphasis in political communication and rhetoric. In 2015 she was hand selected by Dr. Steven Beebe to attend a study-abroad program held at St. Hilda’s University, in Oxford, United Kingdom. In 2012 she graduated from Texas State University with a double major in both Political Science, and Communication Studies. She is hoping to pursue her PhD with a focus in campaign communication in the near future.
In 2017, Chelsea was elected as Chaplain of her local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. In 2018 she was elected as County Chair of the Libertarian Party of Hays County, as well as the SD25 Representative for the State Libertarian Executive Board of the Libertarian Party of Texas. Most recently she was elected as the Vice President of her neighborhood’s Home Owners Association.
Chelsea is passionate about the promotion of liberty and actively seeks ways to help candidates with liberty-minded messages relay those messages to larger audiences.
