Government Relations

Government Relations

Ready to make change? We are too.

Governmental bureaucracy can be a headache and take up copious amounts of time and effort better spent on developing your business or organization. Working with public officials and programs, however, does have the propensity to support your success.

Having several decades of experience in the realms of government and law, we possess many connections and deep knowledge that will be valuable to you. For example, we can help you access available government resources. Additionally, we can identify the proper channels for your initiatives and guide you through the regulatory and legislative process.

As a former mayor and lawyer, we know how these institutions operate. With us, you can transform the government from a bureaucratic headache to an excellent partner.

CASE STUDY: Equine Therapy at St. Croix

US Virgin Islands Governor Albert Bryan Jr. and Bureau of Corrections Director Testamark have contracted with Yepsen and Pikulski and a new nonprofit they helped form, the Virgin Islands Equestrian Equine Therapy Project, INC.,  to provide Equine therapy to inmates at the Golden Grove Correctional Facility on St. Croix.  When travel was difficult due to health concerns, Yepsen and Pikulski have worked successfully long-distance with government officials, local media, people of their community and corporate partners to move the entire process and program forward.  Yepsen and Pikulski even organized a groundbreaking for the project at the Corrections Facility site with the Governor and other leaders which was live streamed and promoted through social media!  Teaching equine management and care will gain the inmates/students a certificate to help with future employment possibilities, support the local economy and offer extremely important proven equine therapeutic benefits to all who participate.
