LOBBYISTS, THIS MESSAGE IS FOR YOU.
I feel your pain. I see you walking the hallways, taking a million calls a day – from clients, legislative staff, and your bosses. It is rough out there. I see you.
You have a ton to juggle –
relationships with your clients, lawmakers, and their staff
drafting language, fact sheets, talking points, and emails
committee schedules, votes, and meetings
negotiating policy needs and coalition dynamics
connecting key stakeholders to their lawmakers
building public support to pass your bills
As you analyze how your bills are going to move through the process, you are evaluating each legislator: you know which ones you can move, which ones need a higher touch, and those who are set in their corner.
Wouldn’t you love to work with a grassroots strategist who can help you strategically engage advocates to move your bills forward?
I DO THIS!
I work with lobbyists (in-house and contract) to strategically engage advocates to achieve your policy goals; to connect your key stakeholders to their lawmakers; to BUILD POWER FOR THE FUTURE!
However, when I reach out to organizations’ government relations or advocacy leaders, I hear, “We don’t need your services. We already have a lobbyist.” Oy vey.
And I respond, THAT’S GREAT! I AM NOT A LOBBYIST! But I can be their best friend.
Lobbyists, I will make you look amazing – to your clients, bosses, and lawmakers! While also strengthening your power in the Capitol.
