From CMF: One Person’s Story of Becoming a Super-Citizen-Advocate

From the Congressional Management Foundation:

Bob O'Hara set out to enhance his skills as a citizen-advocate and see if what CMF proposed would really work in the real world.

He called up the district office for his congressman and asked for a meeting with the district director. He was stunned that he got an instant "yes," and eventually had a 45-minute meeting with the legislator's senior staff in the district! In the last few years he's had many meetings in Massachusetts and Washington with delegation members and other NoLabels supporters. Each time the process is easy – call the office, set up a time, show up and make your pitch.

Bob became an advocate for No Labels, but there's no reason we cannot adopt what he learned and use it ourselves.
