Private dinner hosted by promoters of transparency

via Portland Press Herald
Does anyone else find it ironic that Tarren Bragdon, CEO of the Maine Heritage Policy Center will be hosting a private dinner to lobby legislators and refuses to register as a lobbiest while at the same time MHPC authored legislation to improve transparency in government?

Bragdon, assisting Commissioner Mary Mayhew of DHHS will be giving a presentation on a welfare reform proposal. I'm next to positive these types of presentations are suppose to be conducted at a committee hearing.

I sure wish I could afford a grand dinner to woo my representatives. I'm lucky if they even respond to an email of mine - and I'm chairman of a political party on the ballot in Maine!
