CINDY BISHOP (Lobbyist)              

Lobbying is at the heart of Checkmate Strategies. The art of lobbying entails representing the legislative needs of our clients before the legislative branch of state government. Lobbying is a highly specialized activity that requires someone who communicates well, is honest and credible, and can provide lawmakers with reliable information to help educate themselves on issues that they need to understand.

There are 105 State Representatives and 39 State Senators. This is a lot of ground to cover. However, as your lobbying team, Checkmate Strategies has the experience and connections necessary to help our clients achieve results. In addition to the relationships we maintain with state legislators and our congressional delegation, Checkmate Strategies maintains relationships with business and industry folks, lobbyists and constituencies. 

Checkmate Strategies has mastered the strategies to help our clients gain the benefit of our knowledge. Let our team help you to grow your organization and become a more effective “player” in the legislature arena.
