So much has happened this legislative session! It is amazing how much can happen in a few short months. Some good, some bad and some ugly all mixed together. One of the happy highlights for me is when my Senator invites his colleagues over for a casual home-cooked dinner. He has done it twice this session and he did it again a few weeks ago. I think this last time was one of the best. Although, I always say that.
A few weeks ago, the guest list was a little longer. A little broader (meaning not all Senators). I think we had a few from the House, a staffer from the Governor’s office and a Corporation Commissioner. So, basically almost all branches of government were represented! And, a little bipartisan. Always bipartisan. That is the fun part.
This time, they stayed until 12:30 a.m. The sign of a good party, right?
They stayed until 12:30 a.m. sitting and talking about legislation, party politics, each other. Good things probably come from these discussions and friendships are most likely strengthened.
Our elected officials in Washington D.C. should try this some time.
