What is Lobbying…Really?
- Communicating in some manner with a person in order to prepare them to take, or not take, a future action.
- That “person” may be any individual or any group (your neighbor, your church, your spouse…etc.)
- However, when that person works for, or is elected/appointed to, any governmental body (state or local), the lobbying takes on a different legal & ethical status.
