During my career I have interacted with many lobbying firms. I have found most to be competent and well intentioned. Of those multiple interactions with lobbying firms, I would classify Catalyst as one of the premier firms in Nebraska. Their leadership, expertise, advice and responsiveness to our needs serves Sarpy County well. Virtually every time a County Commissioner attends a hearing in Lincoln they report back to me how much they appreciate the support they receive from Catalyst in terms of testimony prep, factual analysis and the insight they are provided by Tim and his team during the entire legislative process.
Catalyst is highly skilled at working with policy makers across the state branches of government in advocating for and securing needed funding for children services. Catalyst is also skilled at pulling together child welfare stakeholders to collaborate on policy agendas. I highly recommend this firm for anyone needing subject matter expertise in this policy arena.
Catalyst is highly professional, represents the school district’s interests in a positive manner, and their knowledge of legislative issues is outstanding. Tim’s excellent communication skills and professional network set him apart from his peers. I recommend Tim and his team without reservation. They are excellent advocates for our school district.
As the CEO of a state agency, there are many demands on my time and budget. Catalyst is a trusted partner whose ability to grasp key concepts quickly and relate them to senators and staff in a timely and articulate manner has resulted in many legislative wins on behalf of the agency and our foundation. This has allowed History Nebraska to operate more efficiently and cost-effectively.
I appreciate working with the team at Catalyst Public Affairs because they take the time and effort to learn and understand our business. Their forward-thinking approach to government affairs allows Catalyst to anticipate our needs and helps us stay on the pulse of state and local issues affecting Home Instead, its business owners, CAREGivers and clients.
