KEITH PEMRICK

KEITH PEMRICK

Lobbyist

Keith brings 20 years of experience working with many facets of the political landscape, including in Congress and leading campaigns, as well as work in the private sector.

Keith provides G&A’s clients with government relations expertise, including advice and support on a wide range of legislative and regulatory issues. He has never shyed away from long odds or speaking up as a different voice in the conversation. His tenacity and demeanor were useful when working for Blue Dog Democrat Congressman Tim Holden (D-PA) in a majority-Republican district. 

Keith forged bipartisan relationships to advance Congressman Holden’s efforts to best represent his constituents’ interests. 

In 2018, he also took on the challenge of managing the campaign of Denny Wolff, a Democrat seeking the open Pennsylvania 9th congressional district seat in a district President Trump won with 68%. As campaign manager, Keith developed and implemented the election strategy, oversaw all components of the campaign, and served as campaign spokesperson. While Wolff did not get elected, he forced the Republican establishment to fight in a seat that should have been a lock for them, including a district-wide endorsement from Donald Trump, Jr. two days before the election. 

Over the years Keith has become especially adept at issues of transportation, infrastructure, and appropriations. The effects of his work are seen everyday in the district that he served thanks to his hard-won successes during his time with Congressman Holden. 

For example, he secured more than $80.4 million from FY07 through FY10 for critical projects in the congressional district; secured more than $32.4 million for fire companies in the congressional district through the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program (AFGP); was the point person in bringing nonstop service from Harrisburg International Airport (HIA) to Denver International Airport (DIA) through the Small Community Air Service Development Grant Program; wrote the legislative language included in MAP-21 that allows for state autonomy for culvert pipe selection; and led the Pennsylvania delegation’s effort against de-combining air traffic control facilities at seven Pennsylvania airports.
