Well, where to begin?  We had a great crowd last night and many were faces i’d never seen before.  Thanks to everyone who made the effort to be there, and a special note of thanks is due to everyone who bought a membership and joined up last night.  I think we’re now at 99 members.  That’s great.

Those of you who were there may be wondering why only Senator French was there when we advertised it as a meeting with legislators (plural).  The simple fact is that the others we talked to were busy and couldn’t make it.  But in my opinion that worked to our advantage, not detriment.  French knows how Montgomery works, he understands our cause, he understands our opposition, and he understands how we can best go about this to maximize our chance of success and minimize our difficulties.  He spoke at length about what he believes we should do to get a bill introduced and get it passed.  His advice was a tremendous help to us.  And he graciously answered a wide array of questions from many different people.  I doubt the evening would have progressed so smoothly and we would have gotten as much useful information if the conversation had been split between three or four people rather than one.

Folks, we are taking this to the next level.  I’m not going to publish many specifics from the meeting last night because i don’t want to tip our hand just yet.  However, Senator French gave me a lot to chew on and we have a lot to work on in the coming weeks.  Stay tuned for details on action items to be released in the very near future.  We’re about to hit the big time.
