COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of June 8, 2018

Missed the big guy: On Wednesday I received an urgent text from Don Murphy to meet him. I pushed the, “I can’t talk right now” button, as I was in a conference. A few minutes later Don met with former NJ Governor Chris Christie and had a productive chat. The Governor said he recalled going toe to toe with the cowboy on the day of the New Hampshire primary. Go hat go!!

Oil & Gas Conference: I spent Wednesday and Thursday with 45 oil/gas people + some politicians from 26 countries. Besides honoring the invitation of a professional friend, I knew from last year’s conference it would be productive; I had chats with personnel from four embassies, including two ambassadors. I offered them COP assistance to learn more about the legalization movement – like I did for Germany and France in 2015.
