Establish or Strengthen Your Political Presence in Colorado
We are advocates providing our clients with a voice in government with the expertise and presence to identify allies and develop those relationships. We work with our clients to leverage their assets and bring their agenda to the forefront. Policy Matters’ highly respected lobbyists possess first-hand knowledge of the budget, authorizing, and appropriations processes and work to ensure that their client’s message isn’t ignored. We also know how to pass legislation from start to finish and have key insights on political strategy.
Develop a Tailored Legislative Strategy
Communicate. Educate. Persuade. We’ll show you how to develop and refine a clear message to successfully achieve your goals. Policy Matters works to shape legislation, regulations and policies through direct lobbying and proactive advocacy. We know which decision makers to engage in an environment that demands a cogent message and critical timing. Policy Matters takes their clients through every step working to develop advocacy and political outreach plans that target allies and provides the ability to capitalize on their relationships.
Securing Funding for Grants and Appropriations
Since the passage of the TABOR amendment in 1990, Colorado’s budget has become even more complex. Policy Matters’ leadership understands the intricacies of the complicated state budgeting process, and as such our team’s lobbyists possess an impressive list of budget victories. We work tirelessly to defend our client’s budget interests and identify potential funding opportunities within the state budget processes. We help to decipher often-cryptic language, implement custom tailored but practical strategies and work collaboratively with our clients to influence the budget process.
Collaboration with Key Advocacy Groups and Professional Associations
Many of our clients are members of local and national advocacy groups and professional associations. Policy Matters maintains and develops critical relationships with the partner organizations in Colorado, providing our clients the ability to define their advocacy within the organization and work within coalitions while bolstering their presence with specialized advocacy at the local, state and federal levels. We provide the direct link often desired by our clients by working closely with the relevant boards, groups and associations important to their legislative agenda. We will work to identify our client’s business, political, organizational allies and can develop and manage grassroots coalitions to educate and support legislative platforms with broad community support.
Political Outreach and Candidate Support Consulting
The Policy Matters team is comprised of well-respected lobbyists with reputations for building strong relationships and coalitions on both sides of the aisle. We take pride in working in a true bipartisan fashion to help our clients succeed. Some legislators and candidates are more likely to support certain issues than others. We counsel our clients and political action committees on which legislators deserve their support and how best to deliver it. It is our goal to help our clients build and improve relationships with legislators and candidates, supporting both their strongest allies while working to develop relationships with those who oppose their policy priorities.
