Jerry McDaniel, the well-respected former budget director to Governors Charlie Crist and Rick Scott, has joined Southern Strategy Group, the state’s largest governmental relations firm.
McDaniel began working for the firm on Jan. 1.
“We’ve known Jerry for years, and he personifies what is best about government,” said Paul Bradshaw, the founder of Southern Strategy Group. “He has a deep understanding of the details of policy and process, and he has earned an equally deep respect among his colleagues in government for his honesty and fairness. We’re thrilled to have him on our team, and there are few people who are as qualified as Jerry to help SSG’s clients navigate the budget labyrinth.”
