D.C. Business Groups: We are Relevant!

After my profile of the D.C. Fiscal Policy institute, in which Councilmember Jack Evans dissed business groups for their "woeful" analysis and outreach, the D.C.

    Not to lazy business hacks: When you have to issue a press release declaring that you're relevant, you've got a big, big problem on your hands.

    Suggestion: Discover what social media is and make use of it, rather than trying to do back-room deals. Otherwise, you're going to keep getting your asses kicked by Lazere & Co's bleeding hearts crew.
