The Victory Group has represented the MTCA on Beacon Hill for 20 years!

We rely on Steve Roche and his associates at Victory to:

• carry our legislative agenda

• to identify issues of concern to professional town clerks across the Commonwealth & direct our efforts for or against bills and budget matters of concern

• to provide general advice on legislative and administrative matters

• to build solid relationships with key legislators & executive agency heads

Most importantly, The Victory Group has helped the MTCA in building a “presence” at the State House – our views are known and respected on Beacon Hill.

BUREAU OF SPECIAL INVESTIGATIONS INVESTIGATORS ASSOCIATION

(BSIIA)

Dear Mr. Roche:

It was through your relentless efforts that the BSIIA was saved from the budget axe in the harshest of economic times. The fact that our agency was maintained is nothing short of a miracle. In great measure, your individual expertise, persistence, and contacts with state government were pivotal factors.

You and your exceptional staff kept the confidence and enthusiasm necessary to see our association through a difficult two years. Your firm's work was excellent and the budget numbers that you developed with us and through legislative sources was critical. We had several key legislators tell us how helpful the financial information developed by Victory was in making their arguments for funding the BSIIA. Also helpful was your assistance with the media, including Victory's assistance in securing favorable press articles and editorials urging the BSIIA funding.

The result of this team approach to the BSIIA's budget problems was the survival of an agency committed to rooting out fraud and abuse in assistance programs funded by the taxpayer at a time when that oversight is more important than ever.

The survival of the BSIIA is truly a "Victory" for the taxpayers of the state. For that we are eternally grateful to you and your associates.

Sincerely,
Bruce Carmichael
President


IRONWOOD PHARMACHEUTICALS

We recently engaged the Victory Group to assist our company on a difficult state tax issue.

We found the principals at Victory great to work with. They championed our issue and presented it to key people at the State House to ensure we got fair consideration.

I would work with the Victory Team again if the need arose.

COALITION OF PUBLIC SAFETY

(COPS)

COPS has relied upon the Victory Group for assistance on Beacon Hill for several years, on issues ranging from collective bargaining to state budget cuts. COPS represents a variety of interests in state government; our members include Parole Officers, Environmental Police Officers, and investigators at the ABCC.

What we have found most helpful are the long-term, solid working relationships that the Victory principals have with state legislators and key agency personnel. We have greatly benefited over the years from their guidance on issues of importance to COPS members.

President
