Today a group of seven from Georgia Women and Wesleyan College spent the day advocating on behalf of HB731. “Working the Ropes” is a unique experience in that it is the best of our democracy and the worst. Spending the day at the Capitol, calling Representatives out of Chamber to the ropes in the lobby, means constituents have complete and total access to speak with their elected officials regarding an important issue. Officials actually depend on constituents to assist with education on topics of importance. The downside of the experience is watching how many paid lobbyists spend their days working the halls to influence our elected leaders.
