Getting the right message
to the right people.

Smith Public Affairs is in the business of helping our clients succeed. Your goal may be winning a government contract. Or it may be getting the government to let you conduct your business without unreasonable intervention.

Whatever the goal, whether you are interested in government as a customer, a client, or a partner, you need to know your target audience and be able to get your message across to them.

At Smith Public Affairs we have built our business on three proven principles:

1. Understand The Rules

We have over 30 years of experience in Orange County politics and government, so we know the protocol that must be followed in order to be heard. Because we have been there, we know what happens behind the scenes. We also know the organizational history of Orange County.
We can help level the playing field.

2. Have a Game Plan

Our history working with government means we have seen what works and what does not. We have experienced first-hand the changes in local government operations and protocol in recent years. Consequently, we can help develop a strategy to reach the right people, with the right messages, at the right time.

3. Know The Players

The Smith Public Affairs team has spent decades working with Elected Officials, Decision Makers and Staff, including: The OC Board of Supervisors, Orange County Transportation Authority and Transportation Corridor Agencies, Water and School Districts, OC Fire Authority, along with Orange County's 34 cities. We know the players.
