Politics and Pie at NATSO Day on The Hill

NATSO members made their annual pilgrimage to Capitol Hill May 16–18, meeting with Senators and Members of Congress to voice how vitally important the truck­stop and travel plaza industry is to the national economy and how Congres­sional votes affect its ability to thrive.

The event included a kickoff lun­cheon where esteemed political consul­tants Brad Todd and J.B. Poersch, two of the country’s top political strategists, teamed up to discuss the Presidential election, its potential impact on the ballot races as well as to explain the arcane rules of the upcoming Republi­can and Democratic conventions.

Tuesday evening NATSO hosted its annual Capitol Hill pie recep­tion, serving nearly 250 pies to leg­islators and their staff. This annual event carries NATSO’s name to all 535 Members of Congress.

Wednesday, NATSO members attended a Congressional breakfast with Congressman Tom Cole (R-Okla.). Rep. Cole, who was elected in 2002, discussed national politics, including his outlook on the Presi­dential election and the current po­litical landscape.

After breakfast, the more than 50 NATSO members gathered in Washington, D.C., met with their elected officials.
