Now that the dust has finally settled from the 2016 Session, Adams Streeters are retooling and getting ready for the next go-around.
The most recent personnel move: lobbyist Evan Power will join Ramba Consulting Group.
Power comes to the firm — helmed by eponym Dave Ramba — after some 12 years of experience both inside and outside Florida government. Power served in the Florida House in both the Majority Office as well as the Procedures and Policy Office as a Legislative Analyst for former Speaker and current U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.
Power’s professional specialities include transportation and environmental permitting. He is also deeply political outside of work: aside from being the current Chairman for the Leon County Republican Party, he will also be a delegate at the 2016 Republican National Convention.
Power received a bachelor’s degree in finance and a master’s in Applied American Politics and Policy, both from Florida State University.
Founded in 2009, Ramba Consulting Group is located in downtown Tallahassee, in the shadow of the state Capitol.
According to the estimates based on the most recent available lobbying compensation reports, Ramba pulled down more than $1.2 million in revenue for 2015.
The firm also scored a coup during the 2016 Legislative Session wherein they played a key role in securing a possible raise for Supervisors of Elections and other county-level constitutional officers.
