BAIRDS HANG A SHINGLE: Former Heritage Action for Americastrategist Tripp Baird and former Hill staffer Jennifer Baird have launched Off Hill Strategies, a lobbying and consulting shop that promises “a different view and path for navigating inside and outside of Washington.” Off Hill’s services include lobbying, media and grass-roots campaigns, and the firm says it leverages strong relationships with grass-roots leaders and conservative media to amplify messaging.
At Heritage, Tripp Baird was the director of Senate relations and a senior legislative strategist. From 2005 to 2010 he was a partner at Watts Consulting Group, and before that he was a legislative director for former Sen. Mel Martinez of Florida. Jennifer Baird worked on the Hill for former Rep. Porter Goss (R-Fla.), former Rep. Mary Bono Mack (R-Calif.), and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah). The firm launched with four registrations, according to Senate lobbying records: eBay, the 2017 Project, the National Installment Lenders Association and NumbersUSA.
