Local, Arizona State and Federal Government Relations Experience

The B3 team has more than thirty years of experience working with state and local governments in Arizona. CEO Russell Smoldon’s career in Arizona began in the 1980s, and he has made many long-lasting friendships during his time in the Grand Canyon state.

Working with Congressional leaders, legislators, county and city elected officials, and staff at all levels of government, B3’s team strives to identify consensus solutions. We focus on solving problems and creating a better environment for Arizona citizens to grow businesses, raise families, and retire. Whether it is navigating the legislative process, organizing federal support for an issue, or working through local permitting processes B3 has both the experience and the knowledge to resolve client needs.

Any government relations effort with B3 Strategies begins with developing a plan, identifying allies, and understanding all sides of the issue. By recognizing the intricacies of a problem, we are better able to visualize the benefits of a solution and where opposition comes from. Through an in depth understanding, we are better able to represent our clients priorities and achieve their goals.
