Former State Representative Ken Roberson

“I have known Capitol Access President, Jerry Paul, for many years and can attest to his character and integrity.  He subscribes to the highest ethical and moral standards both in his professional and personal life.  As a former State Representative, attorney and lobbyist, Jerry has extensive knowledge and experience in the legislative process.  He has a network of relationships with key leaders in state government and is well respected in Tallahassee. ”

Howard Kunik, City Manager

Thanks for your help, Capitol Access.  You know how to weave through the State legislative bureaucracy.  Our first experience with a lobbyist has been quite rewarding.”

City of Punta Gorda

Mr. Phillip Johnson, Director

Capitol Access has our highest endorsement as a Florida Lobbying firm.  During the 2015 legislative session, Mr. Paul’s team quickly crafted a successful strategy, clearly explained it in terms our stakeholders could understand, provided timely updates on his progress, and quickly adjusted tactics to meet continually evolving situations in Tallahassee.  We have found them be an honest and faithful Knight in the defense of our legislative rights.  Their experience in local, state and national issues makes them an articulate spokesman for many topics.  They were tireless in their efforts to succeed and worked all the hours necessary to be ready for both House and Senate committee meetings.  Jerry Paul is well known and respected in the halls of the Capitol and has the cachet to get the necessary face time with the Florida legislative leadership.  We are extremely fortunate to have benefited from Capitol Access’s professional services and we cannot overstate their abilities to successfully represent our interests.”

Mr. Jon Hunt, Legislative Team Leader

Jerry Paul’s involvement and personal commitment along with his Capitol Access team helped us organize Concerned Citizens in Boca Grande, navigated a course with the Legislative and Executive branches in the Florida government, and gained cooperative support of key legislators and administrators throughout the process.  The key elements he brought to the process included superb judgment in sequencing our lobbying activities for best effect and leverage, utilizing longstanding connections with leaders throughout state government and deft handling of points of resistance raised in the process.  There is absolutely no way that the above results would have been achieved without Jerry’s active leadership and hard work.”

Hon. Pam Seay, Charlotte County Airport Authority

Years ago, our airport engaged Capitol Access to assist in seeking funds for specific airport projects that were otherwise unfunded but desperately needed.  Through their guidance, their professional approach, and personal hands-on involvement, they gained us the funding we needed.  We had tried on numerous occasions on our own, but because of our inexperience we met with only minimal success. Capitol  Access knows what to do and when to do it.  They insured that our request was presented properly.  Without their help, we would again have been waiting on the sidelines of government wondering what went wrong.  Instead, we are actively involved in the process and successful in our efforts. We rely on Capitol Access to this day
