Thanks for the friend invite.  Yes, I must admit that I'm a lawyer, although I usually identify myself as a English major, period.  I appreciate the good work you guys are doing for the biking cause.

Yo Mike,

I don't think the coffee meeting format will need me to pull strings but I'll let ya know if I think a 'friendly' follow up would help.

I'm thinkin' this to be more of an introduction to LOOK for the 3 officials and to sorta feel'em out for contact info and potential leverage as we move forward with the education campaign.

Thanks for the offer and if you can make it the extra body would be handy since the hour and a half is going to be a challenge to hit all 3 since they will be burdened with many constituent concerns.

Jeff Markus
