COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of February 03, 2017

COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of February 03, 2017

Where’s my coat: I put my new jacket in the coat room for the Grover Norquist meeting. I always place it on the front of the rack, so all can read the message. (see below)
Since last year another attendee has been moving it to the middle of the rack, so no one can read it….= I still have a ways to go

How to succeed: This text from Don Murphy of MPP to Mike Correia of NCIA , “if you are on the Hill, stop by FinServ in 2128 (Rayburn). Good opp to meet new members.” Don has been sending these types of messages since he arrived two years ago. This type of intel sharing has never been done in 10 years on the Hill. Don is also the author of the 100 ‘getable’ R members, allowing us to focus on who might evolve and shift their vote our way. Thank you Don.

History Lesson: in my 10 years on the Hill – Don is the first MJ reformer (besides me) to be on the Hill several days a week, EVERY week. The novelty of having lunch with a fellow MJ reformer has still not worn off.
