“Andrew Kessler and his firm Slingshot Solutions have proved to be a perfect fit for our government relations needs. I have worked with Mr. Kessler at both the State level and as part of a larger International organization.  Andrew’s ability to bring our issues before the proper government stakeholders has been impressive, to say the least. Andrew’s firm has helped us prepare the proper talking points to make sure our voices are heard and our issues addressed. I would highly recommend Andrew at Slingshot Solutions to represent any private sector or nonprofit organization before the federal government.”

 “Over the past couple of years, my associates and I, have presented Andrew with a number legislative problems that appeared insoluble, for a number of reasons. Drug abuse in our Native American communities, AIDS/HIV in Swaziland, methamphetamine epidemics throughout America, gender-based violence in refugee communities, and human trafficking across our borders. First, we were an organization of substance abuse, community organizers, and law enforcement consultants, not always the most topical group to represent in Congress. Second, we had no pre-existing legislative presence in Washington, D.C., and no identified friends in the either the House, Senate or Executive Branch. Third, the members of our organization were woefully short on “Washington Beltway” experience. Fourth and most importantly, the solutions our organization was seeking involved the expenditure of Federal funds, at a time when the near-universal reaction to any legislative proposal involving expenditure of money was a flat “no.”  Andrew examined our problems, our organization, and our resources. He designed for us a realistic timetable and a workable strategy, and he guided us expertly through every legislative and administrative contact. While our tactics evolved as matters developed, our strategies never changed. Under Andrew’s guidance, we achieved a great share of our goals. One final observation about working in Washington, D.C., with Andrew Kessler: The minute you enter the Capitol with Andrew, you know he’s the right man for the job. It seems that everyone knows him and no door is closed to him. We could not have been more pleased with our association with Andrew. We look forward to working with him on all our projects.”
