Element 43. Government Relevance > Score Elevation Tactics

Score Elevation Tactics

First of all, and quick because this is an up-front question, who is your governor, the mayor, and the congressional delegation? What are the committee assignments? What story will captivate their attention? The closer the match between your interests and theirs, the higher the score. If the score moves downward because of what you discover, consider a move to a more attractive district—sometimes there is development capital waiting for you to do so, such as across the bridge in the neighboring state.

Dr. Market’s Observation:

If you can foresee a way for your local legislator or head of government to assist you, add points to the score here. If your total score warrants taking the next step, talk to your lawyer about the lobbying potential. He or she is guaranteed to know enough about the law-creating legislative process to be of assistance—they had to pass the bar exam and constitutional law is the Holy Grail for this activity. Your challenge will be to find something that protects your company without necessarily blessing your competition. This is tricky but doable.
