BrandGOV Launches New Lobbying Services for
Small Businesses, Nonprofits and Organizations
(Vallejo, CA) – The North Bay’s newest lobbying and advocacy firm, BrandGOV, is launching a new effort to help small businesses, nonprofits, professional associations and other agencies get heard by those in power and the public. The company, owned by longtime businesswoman K. Patrice Williams, J.D., has started a new program offering outreach services to entities that might otherwise not be able to afford them. Williams and a group of strategists that she has working with her will provide community, government and political engagement services in the areas of transportation, clean energy, economic development, real estate development, education, healthcare, and affordable housing, among others. For more information on the company and its services, please visit BrandGOV’s website.
“I think it’s important for organizations that don’t have the biggest budgets to get the help that they need on policy issues that can make a big difference in our, and their, community,” says Williams, a registered California state lobbyist, with academic degrees in economics and law. “We’re smaller and that actually allows us to provide more personalized and cost-effective services.”
BrandGOV’s clients have included corporate retail franchisees; business development organizations; housing, youth and family organizations; nonprofits; government and public affairs agencies. Local and Bay Area clients have included the Omega Boys and Girls Club; Green Hive Spaces (a sustainable office-workspace complex); AM/PM Arco; the Solano College Small Business Development Center; IBM; and the Citizens Housing Corporation. The company has also worked with local and statewide chambers of commerce to organize legislative lobbying events.
BrandGOV is a certified supplier of services for the State of California, BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit system), Supplier Clearinghouse California Public Utilities Commission, the Western Regional Minority Supplier Development Council (WRMSDC), and the San Francisco County Transportation Authority. It recently qualified as a provider of public information and outreach services for the Solano Transportation Authority.
BrandGOV is a full service, registered lobbying firm, founded originally, as a marketing and outreach company in 2007. Its team of highly-experienced strategists understands the multifaceted nature of policymaking and works with clients to protect their interests and create innovative programs in transportation, clean energy, healthcare, economic development, real estate development, affordable housing, international trade and insurance. The company’s presence and relationships in local, county and state governments, as well as Washington D.C., allows it to serve as a forceful advocate for its clients.
