A few high points
The Colorado Senior Lobby’s Monday morning legislative meetings are growing! The meetings are averaging 30 volunteers each Monday and that includes people calling in from rural Colorado.
The February 27th Monday morning meeting hosted Former Representative Dianne Primavera. She spoke on tips for lobbying Colorado Legislators. One tip is, “Tell the truth, don’t provide any ‘alternative facts’. Remember, each legislator comes to serve with a limited background. There is no way they know all the issues or facts for each aspect of Colorado law. They are relying on you to educate them.”
