F&H generates media attention on legislative priorities

On Jan. 29, Flaherty & Hood’s government relations and communications team of Bradley Peterson, Julie Liew and Kelly Haff led a virtual press conference for the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities (CGMC), one of the firm’s longtime clients. Peterson, who leads F&H’s government relations practice and also serves as executive director of the CGMC, was joined by CGMC President and Little Falls Mayor Greg Zylka and Austin City Administrator Craig Clark to discuss key issues including Local Government Aid, child care, housing and water infrastructure.

And this week, the F&H communications team submitted a guest column by Mayor Zylka to newspapers across the state. The column highlights one of the CGMC’s top priorities — Local Government Aid — and focuses on why LGA is more important than ever as cities try to bounce back from the pandemic. The column has appeared in Duluth News Tribune, Fargo-Moorhead Forum, MinnPost, Grand Rapids Herald Review, West Central Tribune, Albert Lea Tribune, Brainerd Dispatch, Grand Forks Herald, Bemidji Pioneer and other newspapers and websites across the state.
