Legislative Priorities, Strategies, & Process

We evaluate and assist in establishing legislative priorities, strategy, and political strengths.  We assist in developing legislation and obtaining legislative sponsors for bills and shepherding the legislation through committees.  We represent our clients before legislators and elected officials by meeting prior to session to discuss our clients’ priorities and appearing at hearings.  We educate our clients on providing testimony before the legislature.   Our lobbyists will track, monitor and lobby bills during the legislative session and the Governor's actions and work with clients to develop fact sheets, position statements, and legislative alerts.  We will promptly inform clients of, and participate in, legislative interim studies and Governor and agency request legislation and assist, as needed, in local and federal government activities.

Fundraising & Political Action Committees (PAC)

We represent seven Political Action Committees (PACs) and organize approximately 80-100 primary and general election meetings, fundraisers, and meetings for our clients with the candidates during each election cycle.  PAC Contributions are bipartisan given to both Democrats and Republicans.  Contributions are made in person and candidates are all educated about the clients’ issues.  We arrange interviews with relevant candidates for statewide offices and legislative seats and assist in political activity, including reports for PAC activities, which will tabulate the elected offices, total contributions proposed, and contributions delivered.  We will assist in establishing political action committees and conduct training workshops as needed by our client.  We will also make strategic recommendations for the dissemination of PAC funds that will be most effective for your organization.

Grassroots Organization and Representation

We organize and empower grass-root networks for our clients, which empower them and expand their influence by introducing them to their legislators and discussing their legislative issues.  We also provide grassroots legislative advocacy trainings for clients and assist in holding Legislative Days and Receptions in Olympia during the legislative session.  With the diversity of clients and interests we represent, we will build close relationships with most legislators, both in the majority and minority parties, which enhances our effectiveness in representing your city.

Capital Budget, Fiscal, & Tax

We specialize in the integration of fiscal policy, technology, transportation, and regulatory issues, both in bringing forward legislation on behalf of our clients as well as stopping legislation that could harm them. We possess strong relationships with the Chairs and members of the House and Senate Capital Budget; Ways & Means; Financial Institutions, Housing, and Insurance Committees, as well as the Ways and Means, Appropriations, and Finance Committees and we work closely with leadership in both the House and Senate.   Our firm has a proven track record of bringing key decision makers together to achieve positive results for our clients.
