Succeeding for Our Clients

Client Quotes

“This is my first year with Stateside and I am already a loyal client. Everything they promised to me they delivered. The depth of their staff makes almost every request possible and the client service culture makes me feel like family. I feel that I have hired a partner, not just a consulting and monitoring firm.”
Tom DiGangi - Vice President, Government and Regulatory Affairs, The Gordian Group
“Your TellTaleSM Monitoring service identified a state legislator posting positive comments about our technology. Ironically, this legislator also is sponsoring adverse legislation with respect to the same technology. The insights from the social media posts give us a new opportunity to approach this legislator and enlighten him about how the technology works in both applications.”
Stateside Associates Client
“ICSC has been a client of Stateside for almost 20 years. Not only do they add extreme value to our government relations program, but they always deliver what they promise on-time and constantly exceed our expectations.”
- Herb Tyson - Vice President of State & Local Government Relations, International Council of Shopping Centers
“Stateside monitors the goings-on in state capitols regarding issues of interest to (name of corporation redacted) including in particular, the back door maneuverings of plaintiffs’ lawyers as they try to change the law in their favor. As an example, Stateside’s Associate covering Missouri alerted us on a Friday about a hearing just scheduled for the following Monday. That is the kind of service we count on for this program.”

Case Studies

As a result of Stateside’s work, a formal AG multistate working group against the sector was never established. Attorney General signatories on negative letters against the sector have declined dramatically and have become less bipartisan than on the outset of the campaign. In public comments, Attorneys General are more careful to talk about the actions of particular companies and no longer criticize the entire sector.
Addressed Attorneys General Attack on Industry Sector
Since the initiative began in 2013, 29 states enacted 44 laws in 2013 easing licensing challenges for separated service members and veterans; 11 states enacted 12 laws in 2014 and 13 bills are currently pending in 9 states in 2015. Attorney General signatories on negative letters against the sector have declined dramatically and have become less bipartisan than at the outset of the campaign.
Addressed National Unemployment Rate for Veterans Serving Post-9/11
The outreach program is ongoing, but due to Stateside’s efforts the client is now serving as the payments provider to nearly 400 county governments across the country and beginning electronic payment pilot programs with multiple state governments.
Leveraging Local GROUPS to Increase Public Sector Sales Opportunities
All lobbyists remained on retainer for a period of one year and most were then transferred to the national trade association. The chompany has remained a client of Stateside Associates for Issue Management and Legislative Monitoring for 7 years thus far.
