Legislators always like to meet
constituents personally in their offices. If the legislator
can’t meet with you himself, his aide will meet with you and
convey your comments to the legislator. Many of you are new to
the legislative process, but that doesn’t matter. We’ll have
material in our room for your legislator and suggested dialogue
as openers for your brief meeting. First question for your
legislator is: “Do you own a pet?”
Don’t forget to pick up
your RPOA identification button!
