The Government Affairs Department interfaces with all local government entities on behalf of RASM members. We proactively monitor local legislation and regulatory policy for the impact it may have on private property rights and the ability to freely buy, sell and lease property.

For more information or to report local issues, please contact Government Affairs Director Maxwell Brandow (941-952-3410).

In coordination with staff, member committees play an intricate role in the development and implementation of all Government Affairs programs.
