Tassoni tapped by Washington firm to lobby for R.I.

Former senator John J. Tassoni, Jr. has been named Rhode Island’s lobbyist and subject matter expert for Alcalde & Fay, Washington’s premiere independent advocacy resource.

Alcalde & Fay draws on the expertise of people who have dealt with legal matters, public policy, and government and public affairs within their communities, to provide efficient, effective representation of citizens’ views and input to federal decision-makers.

Tassoni, a former member of the Rhode Island State Senate, served from 2001-2012, where he advocated for fair labor practices, affordable healthcare, substance abuse treatment, and assistance for the homeless, earning him high praise among constituents and citizens alike. Additionally, Tassoni has over 30 years of experience in labor relations.

Alcalde & Fay is recognized worldwide for its expertise in federal representation of education, environment/energy, general/corporate, international, maritime, municipalities/public bodies, transportation and infrastructure practice group areas.

Alcalde & Fay’s bi-partisan reputation, combined with high standards of excellence, have commanded attention from senior level decision-makers in Congress, and the offices of every department and agency throughout the Federal government.

“Navigating legislation can be a complex maze. I am no stranger to serving as a vigorous advocate before State and Federal officials. My extensive experience and my knowledge of the process by which public policy is made, along with the support of a firm like Alcalde & Fay, ensures that Rhode Islanders will have effective representation,” said Tassoni.
