LPIN Political Director Brad Klopfenstein is meeting with suburban Indianapolis restaurant owners this afternoon. He's made great inroads with restaurant owners in the Indianapolis area. His message that the LPIN represents the interests of overregulated and over-taxed restaurant owners is getting a positive reception. Brad laid the groundwork for these contacts by actively participating in the coalitions that have formed against the recent smoking ban proposals in Central Indiana.
Also, LPIN Assistant to the State Chair Justin Kempf has taken next Saturday from me (but willingly). His primary responsibilities are supporting my efforts to create the fund raising arm of the LPIN that will match its very impressive political arm. He has successfully scheduled an appointment for me with one of our long term supporters. I'll be traveling to the Northwest of the state for the appointment.
