Trying to Make Good Decisions
Earlier in my career, I worked in Ohio as a political consultant for candidates seeking state and federal office. I also served as a government relations executive for an Ohio-based Fortune 500 company. One of the most important things I gained from this experience is a high level of respect for the vast majority of our elected officials. They have a difficult job. In fact, the political environment today is much more challenging than it was back then. I continue to believe that most of our government officials are trying to make good decisions and welcome responsible feedback from the citizens they serve.
