"Jim Zelinski stepped up to the plate from day one."

  "My working relationship with Jim Zelinski of Zelinski Public Relations spans close to a decade. We first contracted Jim Zelinski's services when State Compensation Insurance Fund was undergoing legislative reform changes in Sacramento. It wasn't the first time reform came our way, but in an effort to get a handle on increased internal and external communications, we tapped outside public relations experts to channel our mission and goals to a wider audience. We were a small department and our audience was growing. Jim Zelinski stepped up to the plate from day one.
His past experience as a beat newspaper reporter was invaluable; he sealed great working partnerships with many trade and business reporters that covered the State Fund story. He became a quick learner of the complex subjects that is workers' compensation and understood the unique role State Fund played in California's workers' compensation market. Jim worked with our Communication staff, State Fund managers, and Executive Committee members on a gamut of issues that resulted in positive local, state regional and national media coverage. Positive coverage is key to any organization, but in some cases, what didn't make it into the headlines is just important as what appears in print. And Jim Zelinski played a large part in this front. Because of Jim's continuous briefings with reporters on a wide range of issues, State Fund averted some negative coverage or, in fact, prevented such coverage. We couldn't ask for more. We were fortunate to work with Mr. Zelinski who was hardworking, fair, and most importantly, delivered excellent results that benefited State Fund. "
