We have been having a debate at my company in the last couple weeks. A couple people want to invite our State and Federal Representatives out to the company for a meet and greet. We are on first name basis with the city and county officals and the president of the company is on the Board of the regional economic development council. Our company is an electronics firm specializing electric vehicles in a very economically depressed (even before the recession) rural area. We are one of the largests manufacturing employers in the county.
The people for the invites believe it is a good way to network, get out what our company does in the area and maybe help us land some money or contracts. The people against the invites do not think anything will come of it and will be a waste our and the elected officals time.
I am on the fence on the subject and I can see both sides, as one of the remaining swing votes I felt I should ask people's opinion on this.
