Jason J. Redd brings a wealth of strategic public affairs experience on a wide range of policy issues to Gibbons. Having spent the past decade serving in roles at the highest levels of New Jersey government and lobbying on behalf of a broad client base, Mr. Redd possesses the unique combination of internal knowledge and external experience critical for successfully navigating the challenging realm of politics on behalf of clients.
His longstanding relationships within government, insight into the legislative and executive processes, and deep understanding of the regulatory issues faced by businesses in the current economy enhance the services he provides.
Prior to joining Gibbons, Mr. Redd served as Deputy Executive Director and General Counsel to the New Jersey Senate Majority Office, where he managed a 40-person legislative operation working on behalf of 24 senators.
Additionally, Mr. Redd has served as Senior Counselor to the Senate President and Chief of Staff to the Senate Majority Leader, where he functioned as principle advisor and negotiator on issues ranging from school funding and healthcare reform to economic development and government transparency.
Beyond his prominent roles within government, Mr. Redd has successfully lobbied for a diverse range of client interests at the state and federal levels while working for Gibbons. Mr. Redd is extensively involved in pro bono and community service, including work on domestic violence and mental illness, and is a former President of the Trenton Board of Education.
Mr. Redd, former Deputy Executive Director and General Counsel to the New Jersey Senate Majority Office, was responsible for advising the Senate President and members of the Democratic Caucus on various legal and policy issues. He also previously served as Chief of Staff to Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg and held various counsel positions in the New Jersey Senate and New Jersey General Assembly Majority Offices.
While in these roles, he analyzed and proposed policy solutions on varied healthcare, insurance, and medical profession issues, managed legislation, and negotiated amendments among sponsors, state agencies, advocacy groups, and the Governor’s office, among many other responsibilities.
For example, Mr. Redd worked closely with Majority Leader Weinberg, cancer survivors, and the Christie Administration to craft the bipartisan Oral Chemotherapy Access Bill, which mandates that insurance policies provide coverage for orally-administered cancer medications on par with coverage for intravenous treatments.
