David Cappiello has been a critical member of the strategy team supporting the Mohegan-Mashantucket effort to preserve Connecticut jobs in the Tourism & Hospitality industry. Prior to bringing David to the team, our Government Relations efforts lacked the type of ‘point-to-point’ engagement that his personable and trustworthy style facilitates. David moves the ball, consistently and effectively. If you are looking for someone with established bona fides with your elected officials, and the ability to quickly grasp the complexities of your effort and objectives you hope to achieve, David is your man.
— Kevin Brown, Chairman of the Mohegan Tribe and Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment

Mr. Cappiello is one of Connecticut’s most effective government affairs advocates—one skilled in achieving successful results in a continually changing environment. His strategic insights, attention to detail and follow-through were clearly evident as he navigated highly complex initiatives on our behalf while delivering above and beyond our expectations.
— Rodney Butler, Chairman, Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation

David has strong relationships on both sides of the aisle which have helped build a greater understanding in Hartford of the work that we do and the challenges that we face. His experience and knowledge base have strengthened our advocacy strategy and helped us secure state bonding for needed projects.
— Jane Davis, President and CEO of Ability Beyond

Finding our industry under attack by adverse legislation in Connecticut, American Surety Company joined forces with a likeminded competitor and retained Mr. Cappiello’s services in a last ditch effort to preserve our business interests. With less than 96 hours remaining in the session, Mr. Cappiello, alongside other industry retained representatives, executed a strategy to not only delay the legislation, but to defeat it. David led the charge and through his efforts, I would single him out for praise well deserved. Our company continues to retain his services into 2017 and believe him to be one of the best legislative consultants we have encountered in my 30+ years in business throughout the United States.
— William B. Carmichael, President and CEO of American Surety Company
I have known David for many years, as a local legislator, colleague in the non-profit sector, and most recently as a consultant on behalf of our organization, and can state unequivocally he is the consummate professional who utilizes his advocacy, action-oriented skills, and political knowledge to effectively and successfully facilitate his clients’ desired outcomes.
— Patricia Zachman, President and CEO of The Women's Center of Greater Danbury
Capitol Hill Group, LLC and its principal David Cappiello provide unparalleled service. Whether it is during the legislative session or off-session, Mr. Cappiello is always available for counsel and works tirelessly to protect his clients’ interests without compromising his professional ethics and personal relationships. Without reservation, I would recommend his services to anyone and believe him to be one of the best government relations professionals anywhere.
— Nicholas J. Wachinski, CEO of Lexington National Insurance Corporation
