NCFPC Ranked Among Most Effective
Special Report - August 26, 2008
The North Carolina Family Policy Council continues to be ranked as one of the most effective advocacy organizations in the state, according to a report released this week by the North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research. John Rustin, the Council’s vice president and director of government relations was identified as the 33rd “most influential lobbyist in the North Carolina General Assembly” out of over 900 lobbyists and government legislative liaisons registered with the N.C. Secretary of State. The North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research conducts the survey every two years and asks legislators, lobbyists and the capital press corps to identify who they believe are the 10 most influential lobbyists in the state legislature. The results of the surveys are then compiled into a listing of those considered to be the “most influential.”
“We are grateful for John’s tireless efforts in the legislature and the hard work of our entire staff to promote traditional family values in North Carolina’s public policy arena,” said Bill Brooks, president of the North Carolina Family Policy Council. “This is the fifth time one of our lobbyists has been ranked in the top 50 and each of these recognitions also demonstrates the involvement of thousands of citizens who want good public policy in our state. Their participation has enabled the Council to maintain one of the most effective voices at the General Assembly, and we thank our supporters for their continued involvement.”
Over the last decade, the North Carolina Family Policy Council has been no stranger to the Center’s list of most influential. Bill Brooks was ranked 50th in 1998, 14th in 2000, 38th in 2002, and Rustin was ranked 50th in 2006.
