COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of May 5,2017

COP on the Hill:
Stories from the week of May 5, 2017

Likewise Sir: Standing outside the Capitol steps on Tuesday (shout out to Don Murphy of MPP for the suggestion), I walked with John Lewis (D-GA) to explain the COP/LEAP position. He replied, “thank you for your service.” I was speechless and finally muttered, “Likewise Sir.” This giant of a man who was beaten senseless by my colleagues on a bridge in Alabama in 1964, gives me hope for our country.

I ended up walking and chatting with 9 House Members during that hour and a half. Good day it was.

Note:…I am on family business the next 12 days in Michigan, Ohio.
