  1. Thanks to each cyber lobbyist for ALL that you’re doing on behalf of the willing and unwilling as everyone benefits when those who lobby succeed.

    With great appreciation!!!


  2. Thanks & Bravo, of course. Is there a way for all of you to share techniques, caveats and tactis with the rest of us mortals?

  3. Thank you to all cyber activists. Let’s keep it up for as long as we need.
    Wishing you and your families a happy and healthy holiday season.
    A toast to 2022!

  4. I’m glad our cyber lobbyists are getting public recognition. But out of the top 50, I’m proud to say 10 are from CA (so, what 9 states are missing from this list?).

  5. Excellent job! Greatly, I appreciate your advocacy on behalf of the millions of members that NEA represents. May this holiday season be filled with health and happiness!

  6. Thank you cyber lobbyists! You inspire me! Public education has been a high priority for me as well.
