I’ve become a fundraiser. With half a million or so we can do this next year. No money, no can do. I’ll try for Cbiz money through my son Darren’s Bozeman boss, Granite Construction $ through Peyton’s acting stepfather Jay McQuillan, Altria (Phillip Morris) $ through a lobbyist friend of my old legislative assistant, Frank Bickford. Former Califonia Assembly Minority Bob Naylor is now a Sacto lobbyist. We’re YR friends from college, and I’ll try to sign him up for the cause at lunch in 10 days or so. Likewise with Sacto lobbyist Laurie Hamson, a friend of Robin Taylor’s. I want 25 to 50 big ones from each of them. Once I make a sale I’ll generate leads at the same time.
I’m selling Article V. It’s a great product, that I know like the back of my hand — better than anyone, as a matter of fact. The timing for the sale is absolutely ideal. And getting better. My problem is making contact with my customers. If I get my foot in the door I will make sales.
Either that or I’m just an old man peddling bullshit.
