The 2014 Mid Term Elections are done.
Change is literally everywhere in the form of new senators, new governors, new congressmen and congresswomen, new statewide officials, and new policy-makers at the state and local level. It is, without a doubt, a historic shift. And, whatever issues and policy battles your organizations faces, this election, like every election, has created serious challenges and real opportunities that you must meet head on.
The results show that there will be a whole lot of new faces, and a few who got promotions, and who will now be shaping policy.
The US Senate, you are aware, is now controlled by the GOP with new senators taking office across the country. There will be over 60 new Members of Congress, with more than half of those having previously served either in state legislatures or in an appointed office. There are new governors in Massachusetts, Illinois, Arkansas, Maryland, Texas, Nebraska and control of state chambers has either switched in a number of states or the addition of new members of the party in control has increased.
The point is this: Here is your opportunity.
