I'm speaking at my alma mater, New Trier High School, tomorrow at 7 pm at a League of Women Voters presentation on Making Democracy Work. I'm filling the role of the lobbyist.
Which, in my opinion, is a great job.
We all should be lobbyists (at least for five minutes a day).
How else will our legislators know about some important improvements we can make? Read our minds?
They have a tough enough job. We should help them by communicating with them about progressive ways to raise wages and raise living standards on a regular basis.
Now is a great time to start.
