The Beltway Briefing – New Year, New Congress, Same Government Shutdown

On our first Beltway Briefing of the new year, Howard Schweitzer, Blake Rutherford, and Kaitlyn Martin discuss where Washington stands on Day 19 of this partial government shutdown (with seemingly no end in sight), what bipartisan legislation might look like from the new 116th Congress, and how the Democratic presidential politics of 2020 are beginning to shape up.

With a background in public affairs, political communications, and legislative policy, Kaitlyn advocates for client policy agendas before Congress and federal administrative agencies, monitors legislation pertinent to the client base and works to advance Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies’ business development and marketing efforts.

Prior to joining Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies, Kaitlyn served as a director at FP1 Strategies, a public affairs, media relations and advertising firm. While at FP1, Kaitlyn helped execute grassroots and earned media campaigns for trade associations and corporate clients across a diverse set of issue areas, led the firm’s writing and messaging efforts across several accounts and helped grow the firm's crisis communications capabilities.   

Before that, Kaitlyn worked as a legislative assistant for one of the country’s largest single issue organizations, where she managed legislative strategy and communications across 26 states and coordinated the organization’s endorsements in hundreds of state races. Kaitlyn began her career as a research assistant at American Continental Group, tracking and monitoring congressional and agency hearings for clients across the financial services, energy, immigration, defense and health care space. 

Kaitlyn graduated cum laude from the George Washington University with a B.A. in political science, public policy focus, and a minor in international affairs.

Kaitlyn is a resident of Washington, D.C. and an active member of the Junior League of Washington.
