Our new Reopening State and Local Economies Service provides summaries written specifically for you regarding only the actions that impact your organization.

 

State and Local Governments have begun to craft plans to reopen their economies as the risks of the COVID-19 Pandemic begin to recede. Understanding the reopening processes – and navigating the tangled framework of state executive, agency, legislative, and local government actions within which you will have to operate – will be challenging.

 

As the largest state and local government affairs firm, Stateside is uniquely positioned to help you navigate the reopening processes, utilizing our expertise and broad perspective of all of the relevant policy arenas. 

 

We can provide you with a consultation to better understand your organization’s needs and to discuss our services in more detail.

STATESIDER OF THE WEEK

 

CJ Rooks

Legislative Associate

Prior to joining Stateside, CJ gained legislative experience working in the Georgia General Assembly as an aide for the House Minority Chair. He graduated from Kennesaw State University with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science.

Where do you call home? I've only been here a year, but I've never enjoyed a place quite like I enjoy DC, so I will say Washington, DC.

How long have you worked at Stateside? April was my 1 year anniversary. 

Who’s your favorite musician? My favorite group is Umphrey's McGee, but since not too many people know them I will say The Grateful Dead!

What’s your favorite board game? Anyone in the office could tell you that I dedicate way too much time to a board game called Axis and Allies, a WWII-based strategy game. The games usually take about a week to finish. 

What was your first job? I was a lifeguard at my neighborhood pool.
