OTTAWA, February 18, 2021 – Counsel Public Affairs is pleased to welcome David Murray to its federal team as Senior Consultant, Federal Advocacy and Polling

“We are thrilled to have David join our federal team. His insights into political strategy and public opinion research will help drive policy change for our clients,” said Sheamus Murphy, Partner, Federal Advocacy at Counsel. “We are especially excited to have David on board to help Counsel expand its services to include public opinion research. We look forward to launching this new service, which will use data to inform the development of narratives for our clients that reflect the public mood of key groups of voters.”
