Legislative and Administrative Lobbying
Our firm maintains a constant and effective presence at the State Capitol. Our relationships with legislative leaders and rank and file lawmakers coupled with our deep understanding of the committee process ensures our clients that their interests will be both promoted and protected. From the introduction of legislation through final action, our team has the knowledge and experience to successfully advocate or oppose legislation.
Advocating for our clients within government agencies requires an understanding of the unique culture of each agency. Relationships with Commissioners, Deputy Commissioners and career government professionals are essential to a successful outcome. In both legislative and administrative lobbying our approach is always strategic with well-defined goals and deliverables. We provide our clients the value they should expect from a public affairs firm.
Strategic Communications and Grassroots Advocacy
Our firm has one of the most active grassroots/strategic communications practices in Connecticut. We have designed and implemented campaigns and built coalitions on local, state and federal issues for over 20 years. Key to any successful campaign is the development of a well-reasoned strategy and the appropriate tactics to deliver a message to decision makers from credible third party voices. Our campaigns rely on the most current technology, polling, critical data and the most effective social media platforms.
Capitol Strategies has worked with all major cities and towns in Connecticut on economic development, land use, environmental, consumer and other policy issues. We maintain strong relationships with Mayors, First Selectmen and governing bodies throughout Connecticut in order to provide clients with advice and counsel on local issues. Most notably, the firm designed and implemented a winning campaign strategy for one of the most high profile town referendums in Connecticut—The Blue Back Square Campaign.
