Progressive Campaigns, Inc. (PCI), is a petition drive management firm based in California. It is owned by Angelo Paparella.

In 1999, PCI was a co-plaintiff with the Initiative & Referendum Institute and U.S. Term Limits in a lawsuit challenging Maine's prohibition on payments to petition circulators and its requirement that petition circulators be residents of the state.[1]

PCI was the petition drive firm hired to conduct a petition drive in 2004 to place a measure on the Washington, D.C. ballot that would authorize 3,500 slot machines in that city. The D.C. elections board disqualified the measure for the ballot after finding "fraud, forgery and other 'systematic' violations of local election laws."[9],[10]

The Ballot Initiative Strategy Center listed PCI as a preferred campaign consultant in 2006.[11]



In 2002, paid circulator Rick Giombetti accused Progressive Campgaigns, Inc. of not paying circulators for the signatures they collected in the last days of a paid petition drive in Washington for I-790.[16]
