“Brandon Ogden with SBCO was professional and approachable as an advocate for our cause. Through to his counsel, I felt fully prepared for what was to be expected during my first opportunity to testify before a legislative body. As an additional service Mr. Ogden met me early the day of our testimony, reviewed procedure, and personally escorted me through the necessary channels to arrive at the hearing room within the statehouse. His calm and practiced presence was invaluable in that moment. Thanks to Mr. Ogden’s efforts, my voice was heard with nominal effort on my part but with major ramifications for the bill being considered.”
Kim Tapia, Owner, Polanko Group

His technical and tactical legislative expertise has proven to be a critical factor in driving greater opportunity for the business community through policy. Brandon is rooted in his care and desire to see small business’ achieve sustainable success – I can think of no other individual I would rather have as a support mechanism in the legislative arena.”
