COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of May 5, 2023

COP on the Hill

Stories from the week of May 5, 2023

Goodness I love my Job:  The whole week was just one good ‘happening’ after another.

*Having a coffee, waiting for my next appointment, a legislative assistant stopped asked, ‘aren’t you the guy with the amazing story?’  I replied I did ride my horse from coast to coast…He; ‘wow, i met you in 2019 in the House and you are one of 3 lobbyists i actually remember!’  (Note; in 3 years he probably met about 1200). We had an excellent 3-4 minute chat on the Drug War and then off he went.

*I gave my first presentation in Spanish on the subject of the Swiss Medication Assisted Treatment to Senator Lujan’s health policy advisor. Fun.

*Senator Cruz (R-TX) is on the judiciary and thus his assistant was extra qualified; US Navy and then 2 years as an assistant US attorney in El Paso..solid and grounded he was. After 10 minutes we were chatting like 2 colleagues back at the cop shop…What a pleasure it was!

*Finished the week with a phone chat with another Republican office.  He had also been a federal prosecutor in central Texas and before that part of a DHS (Dept of Homeland Security) task force in the Northeast, USA….where he learned first-hand that most thefts were done by drug addicts needing the money. Also a Libertarian, we agreed on much.
