There are several common questions that I get when I tell people I’m a lobbyist: What exactly do you do for a living? What are politicians really like? If the Legislature only meets for a few months a year, what do you do the rest of the year?
I have to start out with a disclaimer that there are different types of lobbyists and I certainly can’t speak for all of them. But, as a contract lobbyist working with a team of folks, I think my experience is pretty typical.
