Goodman Schwartz Public Affairs provides services in Arizona in four major areas: state government relations and lobbying, municipal government relations and lobbying, community outreach and issue campaign consulting.
The state government relations practice is centered on offering a wide-range of accessibility with respect to legislative representation, state agencies and regulatory boards. The firm, which represents interests from both the public and private sectors, is accomplished in working within a team environment, as well as on an independent basis, to achieve determined objectives.
Likewise, the local government relations practice focuses on representing public and private entities at all stages of the municipal decision making process. The firm has additional experience in regional government with the Maricopa Association of Governments and the League of Arizona Cities and Towns.
Recognizing the significant impact that public opinion can have in the government decision making process, the firm has established an effective community relations practice designed to operate independently or in conjunction with a traditional lobbyist effort. Specifically, the firm has designed techniques in which communities and other impacted parties can be mobilized, through community outreach, coalition building and grassroots mobilization efforts, to shape public policy by managing public opinion.
As many public policy issues are ultimately resolved at the ballot box, the firm provides a wide range of services in the area of political campaign consulting.
The firm, which has a balanced and diverse portfolio of public and private sector clients, is located in Phoenix, Arizona and serves clients throughout the state.
