In 2012, Capitol Resources partnered with former education advisor to Gov. Jeb Bush, Brewser Brown, to open a Tallahassee office. Brewser is well respected in Florida politics and arguably no one knows education issues and policy better. He’s been instrumental in introducing some education businesses to the rest of firm, as well as helping educate our lobbyists on the challenges, opportunities and nuances within the industry. In 2016, Capitol Resources expanded its Florida presence by opening a Tampa location with the hire of long-time political operative and direct mail consultant, Jon Coley. In 2018, the Tampa team grew with the hiring of Patty Mitchell, an outstanding researcher and writer who has a critical role in our issue advocacy efforts.
