PMCohen Public Affairs



  • Marin General Hospital:  Ongoing Government Relations contract.  Helped craft a solution to the challenge of ‘chronic inebriates’ being brought to the emergency department by the San Rafael Police by creating a partnership between the City of San Rafael and the County of Marin, funded by MGH and Kaiser, to add 2 beds to the Helen Vine Center as short term ‘dry out’ beds for use by SRPD.

  • Transportation Authority of Marin:  Ongoing strategic communication and outreach services.  Helped client respond to organized community opposition to a major freeway interchange project in Greenbrae.  Helped create and manage a community process for reviewing proposals, which led to significant redesign, and consensus on several components of the project.
