Racine-Kenosha chapter makes inroads with Sen. Johnson
By Ross Astoria
I want to tell you about my most recent “lobbying” experience (“lobby” is in scare quotes because I consider CCL the anti-lobby). Melissa, one of the members of the local Racine-Kenosha Chapter in Wisconsin, forwarded me an email (she had received it from one of the big green groups) announcing that Senator Johnson’s staff was holding office hours at the local library in a couple of days. “What do you recommend?” she asked. “Suit, tie, revenue neutral carbon tax,” I replied. We invited one of the local interns with the Energy and Enterprise Initiative, Brett, and planned to meet 10 minutes early to game plan.
