What We Do

GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS  |  STATE & FEDERAL INTERACTIONS  |  MEDIA RELATIONS

 

Effective representation and advocacy in the political process is more than just “lobbying.” Successful advocates for any public policy or legislative position will utilize a broad range of public affairs disciplines to ensure that their issue is understood and acted upon by key decision makers.

When an issue is brought to us, a strategic planning process is begun involving you and our firm. An analysis is conducted on the current status of the issue and the various factors affecting its favorable resolution. A formal recommendation is provided as to the appropriate courses of action that should be taken and political contacts that should be made.

In addition to highly effective direct representation and lobbying activities, Christie Strategy Group provides clients a solid foundation for governmental affairs through the development of:

  • Political Action Committees which support and enhance legislative objectives by implementing an overall political strategy including participation in the electoral process.
  • Grassroots Structures that maximize constituent contacts by training your employees or members on how to communicate effectively with public officials and successfully advocate a legislative or regulatory position.
  • Coordinated Media Campaigns that develop positive relationships between the client and the media and recognize that elected officials on the state and federal levels are greatly influenced by the public’s perception of a given issue.

Christie Strategy Group’s seamless, comprehensive approach to problem solving in the public arena is what sets us apart from the other lobbying firms in Alabama and has brought us recognition from clients and colleagues throughout the community.

Tumultuous Legislative Session Comes to an End

The legislature adjourned sine die on Friday, May 19, 2017 at approximately 7:00 p.m., ending a tumultuous session plagued by resignations, accusations of racism, and uncertainty.


For the first three months of the 2017 legislative session, the dark cloud of impeachment hung over Montgomery. Whisperings of then-Governor Robert Bentley’s impeachment began in 2016, but efforts ramped up during the 2017 session, and on April 10, he resigned after pleading guilty to two misdemeanors.
