Paul - Media

December 6, 2023

A leader in our group had been able to meet with the editorial board whenever he wanted, so I thought I should give it a try. I called up the paper, got to speak with an editorial writer, and asked if we could meet. She said “Sure,” so I went to the paper, and we got to sit down in one of the meeting rooms, and I talked about funding a pilot program for low-income, usually women, would-be entrepreneurs, with financial literacy training options. I really wanted our conservative Senator to support it, maybe even introduce it. So the editorial writer, a woman with considerable experience and skill, wrote a nice long piece, and a staff artist put a graphic in that drew attention. The piece asked the Senator to support it, and he did.

Later, at an event, I ran into the Senator, long after he’d left office, and thanked him for making a difference. He said “It was you guys who had me do it.”
