COP on the Hill

Stories from the week of July 27, 2018

Cman Connor Lamb & Karma: Two months ago, just before he was sworn in, I bumped into Lamb at the elevator near his office. We had an excellent 5-minute chat. This week in the same spot, there he was. I asked him how’s it going after two months. He responded, “you tell me.” We need 534 more members of Congress like him.

Box of Chocolates: I studied my Spanish on the train Wednesday morning (I pick a different language each morning) …Of course at Grover’s brunch 8 conservative French guests showed up. I switched gears and had over 20 minutes of bavardage (chat) with them.

Method to the Madness: I opened 188 doors in Rayburn this week to finish in the House the task of handing out Update 2018 (part two—so much positive news I had to do this twice!!) I asked and was often given the opportunity to chat for 1-2 minutes with the criminal justice aide, usually someone I had already made a full presentation to. All good, as it renews the relationship and I receive good info on where the Member stands (so many positions are “evolving.”)

This week’s stats:

2878 Presentations to Congressional staffers… 35 this week
277 personal chats with a Member of Congress… 03 (CMan Massie R-KY, Clay D-M), Lamb D-PA)
261 chats with other elected officials, state reps, senators, VIPs, etc. 04 this week (2 persons running for the House this fall)
