ARLINGTON, VA, June 8 – Stateside Associates announced today that Kiley Smith is joining its growing State and Local Government Issue Management practice as Senior Political Consultant. Kiley most recently served as Executive Director of the Republican Legislative Campaign Committee (RLCC), the national organization dedicated exclusively to electing more Republicans to state legislatures and the largest caucus within the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC).
“Kiley is a significant addition to the capabilities and depth of our growing state and local government affairs practice at Stateside,” said Michael Behm, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Stateside. “Partnering with Kiley brings to our firm the rare combination of very successful political experience – developed while growing the RLCC and its majority of Republican-controlled state legislatures across the country – and a keen understanding of the advocacy needs of state government affairs professionals.”
Kiley will work closely with Stateside’s Issue Management team, planning and supporting state advocacy efforts on behalf of Stateside’s clients, helping its clients navigate the policy- and political-oriented state and local officials Groups, and leading business development efforts. In addition, she will continue developing her political consulting practice which she began shortly after leaving the RLCC.
RLCC Chairman and Pennsylvania House Speaker Mike Turzai said, “Kiley is wonderful to work with. I found her to be extremely effective and strategic at fundraising and member relations. I am excited she will be able to continue to work with state legislators and legislative groups in her new position with Stateside.”
