John Scofield has been involved in most of the major lobbying battles in the last decade. He relishes a fight, and is rarely on the losing side.
John Scofield has nearly twenty years of experience working for and with Congress at the highest levels. He spent almost a decade in senior positions with the House Appropriations Committee, coordinating political strategy and messaging for the Committee and Subcommittee leaderships.
