This session was on How to Lobby Effectively with Bonnie Bruce Legislative Director for State Rep. Burt Solomons. It was helpful for me because I might end up doing policy work in the future. I feel more confident and knowledgeable about the legislative process. I don’t find it interesting enough to write about though. The main point that everyone might find useful is that the majority of representatives don’t know anything about agriculture. Only if they come from an agricultural district will they have specific knowledge about those issues. One of the ways democracy functions better is when we can act as a croud source for our representatives. We can’t expect them to know everything. So let them know.
