Specifications include, but are not limited to: Dane County currently employs a full-time, in-house lobbyist in the Office of the Dane
County Executive. The County’s in-house lobbyist is an employee of Dane County and
is charged with maintaining communication with Dane County’s state and federal
legislative representatives, providing government relations and lobbying services for
Dane County based on the County’s legislative priorities, and communicating with and
informing the County Executive and County Board of Supervisors regarding state and
federal legislative and budget activities related to Dane County issues.
Because there are a number of significant Dane County projects and initiatives that will
be subject to the actions of the Wisconsin State Legislature in the 2019-2021 legislative
session, the Dane County Board of Supervisors will require additional government
relations assistance to advocate effectively for its legislative positions and priorities. The
County Board seeks to contract with a qualified government relations/lobbying
consultant that can raise awareness within the Wisconsin State Legislature of the
County’s priorities and positions, and effectively represent the County’s positions to
ensure that Dane County government can operate effectively to serve its residents.
