Linda Kowalski and the entire team at The Kowalski Group embody the best in what any company looks for in a governmental relations professional: integrity, hard work, effectiveness, commitment, knowledge and political insight. We have been fortunate to have The Kowalski Group represent us in Hartford and look forward to a long and productive relationship with them. We recommend them highly to any organization seeking effective representation in Connecticut state government.

Linda is a hard-working, very diligent and resourceful individual who cares greatly about her clients...She truly has a passion for her job and that is evident with the results that she obtains. Her communication skills are apparent in her monthly reports back to the Executive Board as well as her frequent written correspondence back to the general membership... I have nothing but the highest respect for not only Linda, but also the entire firm that she represents.

Candito C. Carroccia, D.C.
Past President and Past Legislative Chairman, 
Connecticut Chiropractic Association


Linda, through her work during the last decade, has helped make it possible for those in our field to survive some very difficult times and to, in fact, flourish. During this time she taught us how the processes in government worked, held our hands in becoming involved, provided all the information we needed, and opened all the doors that needed to be available to us...I have been and remain inspired by Linda's tireless energy, level of involvement at the Legislative Office Building, and her availability.
