And while no one can bat a thousand, our batting average gives us MVP status in this unpredictable and complicated arena.
HERE ARE SOME RECENT SUCCESS STORIES AS A RESULT OF PUBLIC POLICY SERVICES:
Rose + Allyn was proud to be part of a dedicated and talented team to help pass a ballot measure to outlaw political “dark money” spending. Former Arizona Attorney general Terry Goddard’s dream of bringing transparency to pollical spending won with more than 72% of the vote, the most popular measure on Arizona’s 2022 ballot.
Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT)
In 2019 RA ran a successful election for the Tribe to gain support among members for important water leasing agreements. Providing communications support for the Tribe’s role in Arizona’s landmark Drought Contingency Plan passed by Governor Ducey and the Arizona State Legislature. RA is now involved in assisting CRIT in getting federal drought relief legislation passed. It recently passed in the US House and awaits passage in the US Senate. Rose + Allyn also assists CRIT in ongoing media relations and social media.
Efforts to bring mega malls and massive commercial development to the doorstep of the Grand Canyon go back more than 20 years when an Italian development company called Stilo consolidated its land holdings and we have been there to successfully stop them every step of the way in one of the nation’s great land use battles. Rose + Allyn, representing existing businesses, also assisted in replacing a developer-controlled Tusayan Mayor and Council with community members committed to upholding the Town’s best interests.
Rose + Allyn assisted this Fortune 300 Phoenix-based company in obtaining a waste transfer facility despite overwhelming neighborhood opposition which was based in rumor rather than fact. Key to this success was extensive public outreach utilizing events, social media, earned media, and government relations. And while this infrastructure may not be glamourous, it is necessary, and will be unobtrusive thanks to public interaction.++
