Re: Question about non-compete clauses
I don't know how it was done in Maine, but I know I for one spent some
time lobbying my local rep and local senator. Others who know members of
the leadership also lobbied them, I did my lobbying as a voter living in
the district the rep and senator represents as a constituent wanting a
piece of legislation approved....on my own time. In Mass this is
generally how it was done, although I don't see anything wrong with
talking to a rep or senator if you are at the statehouse covering a story
and making your case. I did not hear any rep or senator complain that
they were pressured, it was an issue of fairness.
