COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of October 20, 2023

Weekly Activities:

534 to go:  Cman Mfume gave me a moment this week. After I gave him my mission statement, he responded that Kurt Schmoke had had the right idea 50 years ago (legalize heroin to solve a host of problems).  I responded, “I stand on the broad shoulders of Mayor Schmoke and represent at least 7,000 other cops who take the same position.”   How I love a person of courage and wisdom.  534 to go!

Grover meeting:  you note each week I attend the Norquist center-right meeting.  Besides sitting at the main table and being Grover’s ‘go to expert’ on all matters of Modern Prohibition, I have 2-5 minutes chats with folks running for Congress, running organizations and other experts. Moreover, I feel so good about those 2 hours of presenting my Libertarian/Police POV….Love  my job!! At this stage of my career, it has become vitally important that I enjoy my work And I Do.

Off Duty Marketing:  As you know, I wear my Ask Me Why shirt pretty much 24-7, when I am not in Congress..this week i went to Costco Pharmacy to request my medication.  The woman at the counter opened with, “Mr. Wooldridge your order for the heart meds is almost ready.  I will let you know.”   I was SPEECHLESS.  After I asked, she said, ‘ I have seen you for 15 years, noticing you switched from Legalize Pot to Legalize Heroin a few years ago.   You are hard to miss.’

She left me stuttering. Wow!

This Week:

4099 Presentations to Congressional staffers… 10  this week…

370 personal chats with a Member of Congress… 03 this week:  Cman Mfume (D-MD), Cman Burlison (R-MO), Delegate Gonzalez (R-Puerto Rico) in Spanish naturalmente
