Successes

California Park & Recreation Society:

Stephanie Stephens, CAE, Executive Director, California Park & Recreation Society, Sacramento

“CPRS has worked with Houston Magnani and Associates (HMA) for over 30 years and our organization has never doubted the loyalty and commitment of HMA. Our advocacy goals are HMA’s goals. Their interest in our work goes beyond the contract terms as they are personally dedicated to making California’s parks, trails, and natural spaces accessible to all Californians. The firm treats each member of the Society as a client which is greatly appreciated. I never question the fact that CPRS’s advocacy needs are being fully addressed in California.”

East Bay Regional Park District:

Robert E. Doyle, General Manager, East Bay Regional Park District (Largest Park District in Continental U.S.)

“During their 30 plus year tenure with the District, Houston Magnani and Associates (HMA) has been an integral part of our success and story as a world class park entity.  To be a leader in parks and recreation requires great governmental affairs advocacy. From helping to secure tens of millions in funds through the budget process and other funding vehicles to protecting our revenue base from proposed state actions, HMA has exceeded all expectations and we are indebted to HMA because of their unwavering commitment to the District.”

U.S. Borax:

Judy Brown, Director of Government Affairs & Communities, US Borax

“It has truly been our privilege to have The Houston Group leading our legislative and regulatory efforts over the past 25 years in Sacramento. As one of California’s oldest corporate citizens, US Borax has had to adapt to California’s dynamic policy-making environment. The Houston Group’s tactical and strategic counsel, advocacy skills and positive reputation within state government has been of great assistance in navigating some of the challenges that have confronted US Borax. The Houston Group has been a key factor in our success as an operating California company.”
