All Pork is Pork Unless It's Your Own

We have reached a situation (or, to be more honest, it's probably existing from day one in 1789) where the major job of Congress is to get goodies for the folks back home. Here's our local example of how we try to get the goodies:

The Ontario Chamber of Commerce traveled to Washington D.C. to meet with the U.S. Chamber and Congressmen Joe Baca, David Dreier, Gary Miller, and Ken Calvert. This trip jumpstarted the Chamber’s 2008 legislative agenda and planning process in representing the interests of Ontario businesses with government.

The Chamber formed strategic partnerships with local businesses and the U.S. Chamber in order to build and sustain a bipartisan coalition on issues at the federal level that impact us at the local level. The Chamber wants to ensure Ontario businesses will have access to information and access to the decision makers impacting the Chamber 2008 legislative priorities.

Finally, the Chamber met with key business leaders, the Governor’s office, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to develop an action plan on the Chamber’s legislative priorities. The Chamber will now finalize the details of is 2008 legislative priorities in the coming months after returning from the trip.

Shower me with goodies, Mister Baca Senior.
