Joel Rubin

CFM expert on Congressional Appropriations, Competitive Grants and Municipal Government Advocacy


With 13 years of experience working on Capitol Hill, Rubin has a nuanced view of the inner workings of the legislative process.  As Legislative Director to Congressman Brian Baird (D-WA), Rubin helped pass legislation important to millions in the Pacific NW.  As the lead of CFM's federal practice, Rubin understands the positive role Congress can play in people's lives.
