California Charter Schools Association
Our work with ARC Strategies is more a partnership than a typical lobbyist-client relationship. They invest time and energy to deeply understand the issues that matter most to our members, and then provide insightful, actionable and targeted advice to execute on our legislative priorities. They use their expertise and knowledge about California’s policy environment to identify realistic and practical outcomes to meet our and the members’ legislative goals. While they lean towards consensus-building and compromise, they are prepared to take on opponents on behalf of us and our members. They have been instrumental in our most important and decisive wins over the past several years. Ricardo Soto Chief Advocacy Officer, California Charter Schools Association
