Don’t Be Intimidated
Intentionally or not, the system is intimidating. To personally a key policymaker, you may have to go through two secretaries, and three doors—and then confront a huge overpowering walnut desk which separates you from the policymaker. During official meetings, the policymakers sit together, usually on a raised platform, surrounding themselves with “experts” from the bureaucracy. If you wish to address the group you must “come down front” to stand before them—alone—speaking into a microphone which distorts your voice, giving you a strange sensation. Don’t be intimidated by all of this. If you are informed, if you have the votes, and if your support group shows up, you will find your fears will soon disappear.
