“Without much time to prepare, David Oates and his team were instrumental in creating the needed public awareness that the Mayor of San Diego and the City Council couldn’t ignore. If the cuts went through as originally planned, we would have seen drastic reductions in needed programs in every neighborhood in our city, including free, invaluable programs for veterans and seniors. Arts and culture organizations also provide programming to more than 225,000 students in every school in San Diego. We’re thankful for his assistance.”

David’s experience as a Public Affairs Officer in the Navy and as the owner of Stalwart Communications make for an unbeatable combination for delivering excellence and value to his clients. Besides being an extremely talented Marketing/PR/Crisis Communications professional, David has been and continues to be a mentor and close friend. I trust him explicitly to deliver top-tier service and am collaborating with him on several projects. David is IMPRESSIVE and GETS RESULTS!
