We contract with a paid lobbyist, the Dorn Policy Group, to move our business agenda forward.

Dorn Policy Group has been lobbying federal, state, county, municipal and tribal government entities since 2000. Dorn Policy Group, Inc. is a leading professional public affairs firm serving Arizona and the Western United States. Working closely with Republicans, Democrats and Independents, we provide public affairs consulting, lobbying, business development and government relations services to a variety of clients in both the private and public sector.  Our firm has established a solid reputation as skillful, honorable and effective.

At the core of Dorn Policy Group is a team with a strong government relations background. The firm’s principle lobbyists, Tom Dorn, Eric Emmert and Amanda Rusing have 33 combined years government relations and political consulting experience.

Because of our extensive connections within local and county governments throughout Arizona, Dorn Policy Group is able to make introductions to lawmakers and key government staff for its clients. We are known for our strong relationships with government decision makers.

Dorn Policy Group is “on the ground” at the Arizona Legislature every day during regular and special sessions meeting with legislators, legislative staff, the Governor’s staff, agency officials and other key stakeholders on issues of importance to our clients. In federal and tribal matters, we meet with appropriate officials on a regular basis to advance the agendas of our wide array of clients.  We use both technology and a personal touch to advocate client issues and direct the outcome.

We cover committee hearings thoroughly and testify before committees regularly on our clients’ behalf.  When monitoring the political dynamics associated with a client project, bill or ordinance, we orchestrate strategic efforts ranging from grassroots advocacy campaigns to written testimony for our clients with specific messages tailored to secure a swing vote of a particular policymaker.  We manage the entire political process on behalf of our clients.

We are skilled in bill and ordinance drafting, amendment preparation and the rules of various governmental bodies.  Our personal relationships with Congressional members, state legislators, county supervisors, city council members, tribal council members and their staff provide access for our clients’ concerns to be conveyed in a timely and effective manner.

Also critical to the issues management process is interfacing with government agencies. We maintain positive working relationships with department directors and key decision-making staff within federal, state, county, municipal and tribal governments. Unchecked, agencies can make decisions that have a significant impact on business operations and projects. We manage issues with staff to secure the desired results for our increasing number of clients.
