EDWARD BRIGGS

Director of Community & Governmental Affairs

Prior to joining RSA Consulting Group in February 2013, Edward was the Grassroots Coordinator for Senator Tom Lee’s campaign in Brandon, FL and assisted Senator Lee by serving as his Legislative Aide during the transition to Tallahassee. As Grassroots Coordinator, Edward was responsible for organizing hundreds of volunteers, coordinating events and working with the many local organizations that supported the campaign.

Before taking the Grassroots Coordinator position, Edward worked for the Republic Party of Florida in Tallahassee in Senate Campaigns. As such, Edward worked directly in support of key leaders in the Senate. His outstanding work ethic and can-do attitude in this position directly led to his selection to help coordinate Senator Lee’s campaign.

Edward was born and raised in Tallahassee and attended Trinity Catholic School and John Paul II Catholic High School. Upon graduating from John Paul II Catholic High School, Edward attended Florida State University where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science. Being an avid Nole his whole life, he could think of no other place from which he would rather receive his higher education.
