I've worked on a couple local campaigns and delivered measurable results. If you'd like to review some client reporting I'd be happy to share what I am allowed too. Most of the sites I build are WordPress because of their ease of use but I am confident in my HTML and CSS abilities.
I've built SQL databases populated with crime reports, voter statistics, city finances and more. With over a dozen data sources and using Google Data Studio and Google Fusion Tables I can deliver enterprise grade reporting to your campaign or business.
Hosting doesn't have to limit your ability to deliver your message online to a local audience. I don't generally offer web hosting even though I opperate multiple web servers from Google Cloud Platform and Amazon Web Services. I design cloud envionments to meet client needs and let them host themselves usually for less than they'd pay someone to host their site.
