What is a Lobbyist?

You hear the term all the time on television, but what is a lobbyist, and what does he or she do? How does a lobbyist influence the daily operation of the government

Lobbyists are professional advocates that work to influence political decisions on behalf of individuals and organizations like the Collector Car Council of Colorado (CCCC).  This advocacy can lead to the proposal of new legislation, or the amendment of existing laws and regulations. However, a lobbyist is prohibited from paying a politician to secure his or her vote on these matters.

The CCCC supports the Friends of Collector Cars , a political committee that does make donations to political campaigns in a non biased manner.

If you would like more information on our lobbyist Friends of Collector Cars and what the CCCC is doing, please feel free to attend one of our meetings and/or direct your questions and comments via email using the email link in the “Contact” section below.
