How to Be a Citizen Lobbyist-What does that look like?

LOCATION CHANGED!  PLEASE NOTE - now location will be El Chico.  Yum!

(They do have salads and American cuisine if you prefer.)


How many times have you heard or said - "I really want to MAKE A DIFFERENCE!"?


All of us want to make a difference. But, we can often be frustrated about just exactly how we can truly affect change.

I want to share with you what I am learning about how to get to know your Representative and Senators, and how you can help them when they are on your same page, or to try to re-direct them if they are not.  Reps and Senators are just 'regular folk' like the rest of us.  Getting to know them can really increase your chances of affecting change, especially if they are not just polar opposites in their core beliefs.  We can also help you know ways you can still affect positive change even if YOUR Rep./Senator is not on 'your side'.

Hey, did you know you can even introduce legislation to your Rep. and let him take it from there? It's true!


Come hear how we can all get on the right path to making the positive difference we all really got into 'politics' for in the first place!

This is not Rocket Science, and you can do a lot of it from your computer!

Our representatives are writing their legislation now, so now is a great time to get involved with influencing them, and possibly even submitting some language to insert into a bill that you would like to see passed in the 83rd Texas Legislative term.


We will have a great time - I always learn a lot from you guys too! So, even if you already know about this issue, please, come and share from your experience and knowledge.

See you there!

We need members (why not you?), to assist in watching how our US Senators and Representatives are voting on key issues, and reporting this to the group, as well.

Please take time to join us if you can.  If you cannot, I'd love to hear from you anyway, to let me know you are on board, and if there are things you are working on outside of our group.  I myself attend several other 9-12 and Tea Party groups, and am learning lots, and having opportunities to get involved.  I welcome everyone's comments - "pro or con".

Join or login to comment.
