Legislative Weekend 2013

Bikers Making a Difference

We have long ago determined that our Legislators cannot read our minds. They need people to tell them what is expected of them and they do welcome your input. Unfortunately most people don't bother to talk with their Legislators. The people the Legislators see all the time are corporate lobbyists who typically don’t care anything about us. Since we know Bikers will go to events that they can enjoy the company of their Brothers and Sisters. We decided to have an event that occurs for the very purpose of gathering people and getting them to talk to their Legislators.
