Dawson welcomes Carter Cornick

Regulatory and lobbying efforts in Washington increasingly demand not only policy knowledge but also an understanding of related media strategies.

That’s why Dawson & Associates is delighted to announce that Carter Cornick has joined our firm as a Senior Advisor.  A former Deputy Assistant Secretary at the Department of Housing & Urban Develpment, Carter has spent more than 20 years in Executive and Legislative branch positions.

Carter’s knowledge covers multiple issues including federal financial services, housing, defense and transportation policies.    He has also distinguished himself as an expert in media strategies, having served as Communications Director for former U.S. Senator John Warner and as committee spokesman for the Senate Armed Services Committee.

During Carter’s three years as General Deputy Assistant Secretary at HUD, he led three offices: intergovernmental relations, legislation, and congressional relations.  He was the principal advisor to HUD’s leadership, including two Cabinet Secretaries, with respect to Congressional relations and policy matters affecting federal state and local governments.
