Pala Band of Mission Indians
The Pala Band of Mission Indians retained Elmets Communications to assist with the passage of the Pala Compact negotiated with Governor Pete Wilson. Elmets Communications conducted a media relations campaign centered on publicizing the benefits of this historic Tribal-State Gaming Compact, which the Legislature passed and the governor signed. The Pala Compact led the way for other tribes to negotiate similar compacts, including those negotiated with Governor Gray Davis. Elmets Communications also worked with Pala and other tribes to renegotiate their compacts with Governor Schwarzenegger. Elmets Communications created the media relations strategy for unveiling the Pala Band of Mission Indians' management agreement with Anchor Gaming and continues to provide communications strategy, legislative council, speech writing and media coordination. Elmets Communications has also developed a website and brochure for the Tribe’s use.
