Philly Mag Profiles PA Powerhouse Lobbyist David Urban

Check out this profile piece on American Consulting Group president David Urban in Philadelphia Magazine.

Urban, 46, is a West Point grad, a Gulf War Veteran, former Chief of Staff to Senator Arlen Specter, and one of the most influential lobbyists in Washington DC.

From the article David Urban: The Patriot

DAVID URBAN has one goal today: Run out the clock.

It shouldn’t be hard. The lame-duck session of the 111th Congress is already awash in chaos, and the chances of anything substantive passing before law-makers adjourn in a few weeks appear, at this point, infinitesimal. But there’s still uncertainty. And David Urban doesn’t like uncertainty.

Uncertainty means that unfriendly legislation could get tucked into an eleventh-hour bill, which Urban might not be able to head off. Worse, no one — from senators to their staffers to the lobbyists scurrying around the Senate’s hallways this December morning — has a clue as to the ever-fluxing state of play. Anyway, Urban didn’t get where he is by taking victories for granted.

So the 46-year-old president of American Continental Group, a multi-
million-dollar lobbying firm that represents a who’s who of Pennsylvania powerhouses, will spend the day on Capitol Hill, mining for information and marshaling his troops.
