Influencing Politics

  • Meet and know your representatives. Don’t wait for the day you need them; go see them ahead of a crisis and create a relationship.
  • Be factual with data and numbers. All proposed new legislation is part of someone’s political agenda, so expect anything you challenge to be vigorously defended.
  • If you’re going in to make a presentation or pitch, rehearse your argument. Have someone take an adversarial side to help you prepare.
