Monday at Capitol Lobby Day Alarm

Postby denick » Fri Mar 08, 2013 10:34 am

Okay, How do I, we, do this? I've never done any "organizing" but I don't have any excuse. No work, weathers rotten so I have the time.

I live in Lakeville. The farthest northwest corner of the state. Not a whole lot of people here to motivate. But I'm meeting people who just don't know what to do. I think their afraid.I know I'm not brimming over with confidence about going to the Capitol.

So how do I or anybody get people moving. Many of you may dismiss what I'm saying. But many good people need help to be good people.

Things they need to know or "get over".

Information on the event,
Websites of every group involved or promoting in the event
Directions
Parking
Where to eat
How to get around the Capitol
Phone numbers of their Reps and Bill sponsors
Car Pool or rides
Local contacts

I'm asking you who know, to pile every piece of knowledge about the event, the Capitol, how to speak, anything in a thread here.

My cell phone is 860-671-1018 Nick

From conversations I've had with members and others and things I've read I am posting points to remember for Monday. Please add anything you feel is important.

From CCDL,read the complete page here,
http://www.ccdl.us/component/content/ar ... he-capitol

Lobby Day is not a rally like back in January. We will be inside the Legislative Office Building (LOB). This is your chance to meet one on one with your local legislators and tell them you oppose further restrictions on our rights. Even if your legislator is already on our side, come out and support us. There is strength in numbers!
Please, business attire or at least business casual, and leave your signs and camo home. Follow the same Dos and Don’ts you would if you were testifying. Also remember that under CT state law, weapons are not permitted inside the LOB.

The time you get there is not important.
If you show up in the building at 3:45 PM it's just as important as at 10:00 AM. They expect/hope a surge in the morning and then it fizzling out.

If you cannot come to Hartford,
From 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM contact your representative any way you can. Phone email, Facebook. If you don't get through leave a message and call back. If they are overwhelmed by phone calls tomorrow it would be great.
Find your Rep, http://www.cga.ct.gov/asp/menu/CGAFindLeg.asp

Please be polite and courteous when communicating with legislators. If everyone showed up, 1, was extremely patient, 2, with a big smile on their face. 3, Looked every person they meet at the Legislature in the eye (you'll get a good idea of who they are by their handshake and if they look you in the eye) And 4, gave everyone a firm handshake. If these 4 things were communicated by everyone the Reps would be unnerved. They are expecting scowling, growling and short tempers (this is the world they live in. Don't go down there) Remember you are there to protect everyone's "Rights" even theirs. Smile at them, your doing them a favor.

Remember the Public hearing Thursday the 14th

Denick, Thanks for the info. I like the part about the "scowling, growling and short tempers". It sounds like my job sometimes too.

And thanks for the heads-up on the March 14th “Gun Day” for public hearings in room 2C of the LOB.
