COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of July 29, 2016

Stories from the week of July 29, 2016

Whistleblower’s Conference: I presented to this group of Friday afternoon for two hours. It was not well attended but I did have an interview with a reporter

I spent two days going door to door, updating my contact info and distributing 2016 updates. Finally getting back to a normal workweek. Great chats with staff aides always pumps me up.
Marathon Man: In the Rayburn escalator an legislative assistant asked how my issue was going, ending by wishing me a speedy success. Later a Capitol police officer asked the same question, leaving me with words of encouragement. As I end my 10th year on the Hill, I feel like a guy on a long, long run…and people along the race route who don’t know me are offering their encouragement. Feels real good.
