Author bio
I've worked for 25 years in 47 states and Washington DC helping corporations and associations influence politicians and public policy and to help them recruit, motivate and activate members to lobby. My keynotes, seminars, video and book are based on research into why people do and don't get involved in legislative lobbying. I consult to help you use money, media, members and professional lobbying staff to maximum impact in a moral, legal and ethical framework.
And whatever we do, we always have fun.

Favorite Quote or Personal Motto

Ordinary people can have enormous Personal Political Power if they understand the real work of influencing public policy starts the day after the election.

“We in America do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate.”
― Thomas Jefferson

"The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; Those who are in the twilight of life, the aged;
and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.

Last speech of Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey November 1, 1977 Washington DC
