    Jeremy Estenson
    B.A. in Political Science, 2003
    Director of Government Affairs, Leonard, Street & Deinard, Minneapolis
    As a lobbyist, my job is to influence lawmaking on behalf of my clients' interests. Detailed knowledge of my clients' issues and good relationships with lawmakers are the two most important keys to being successful. In the summer and fall months, I spend most of my time visiting legislators to create issue awareness and broadening my understanding of my issue areas. Minnesota's legislative session begins in January or February (depending upon the year) and ends late in May. During that time, I spend my days at the Capitol in St Paul meeting with legislators and providing information to committees with the goal of either enacting new laws or stopping those which could harm my clients.
