Michael S. O’Brien is the founder and principal of MOB Advocacy. He brings over ten years of state and local government relations experience with corporations, national trade associations and non-profit organizations to serve clients in this full-service, multi-state government relations firm.
Michael founded MOB Advocacy with the intent of focusing on start-ups, small businesses and non-profit organizations. “Through my years of lobbying at the state level and developing national state and local direct and grassroots strategies, I saw a lack of representation of small business and start-ups at the National Governors Association (NGA), the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) and other similar meetings,” said Michael. “There is a common saying, ‘If you are not at the table, you are on the menu.’ and I think we can help bring an important voice to the table,” he added.
That doesn’t mean MOB Advocacy does not represent large companies as well. “I can not think of any organization - for-profit or non-profit, large or small, local, regional or national that could not benefit from an increased state and local presence,” says Michael. “Whether your organization is in a regulated industry and needs to be out in front of the legislature or city council, or you want to run a grassroots advocacy campaign, or you want to get more politically active, or if you simply see state and local governments as a great potential customer or partner, MOB Advocacy was formed to help your organization achieve its goals. We are YOUR state and local government relations solution.”
