Washington DC lobbyists are the most direct link between voters and their elected representatives, other than voting. They are hired by interest groups, such as companies, corporations or associations, to advocate on behalf of their clients and represent all different aspects of society. Lobbyists continuously communicate with legislators and their staff members to inform them about issues, without trying to influence votes with gifts, money, or other incentives. This role has been part of the legislative environment since the era of the founders, when James Madison addressed the issue in his federalist documents.
Thomas Jefferson spoke of the need for an exchange of information between the governed and those who govern, calling it the “dialogue of democracy”.In today's world, special interest groups play a major role in Washington DC politics. They are organizations that seek to influence public policy by advocating for their particular interests. These groups can range from large corporations to small non-profits, and they often employ lobbyists to help them achieve their goals. Lobbyists are professionals who specialize in understanding the legislative process and advocating for their clients' interests. Lobbyit's alternative approach is to charge more reasonable rates, opening the doors to more diverse groups with a smaller budget but with equally vital concerns.
