Client Quotes

“Stateside Associates is an essential part of our success. Retained at the infancy of our state government affairs program, Connie and her team bring so much to the table. I lean on them for strategic advice, advocacy, Attorney General outreach, and legislative monitoring. Perhaps most importantly, they are pro-active in offering ideas and work without being asked. That makes my life a lot easier, and makes me look a lot smarter. We could not have a successful program without Stateside Associates.”
