"Working at the Texas Capitol is No Picnic" Kit
Support Materials - Cable System 2
Time Warner Cable-Southwest Division - Flower Mound, TX
Working at the Texas Capitol is No PicnicAs competition in Texas has grown - in the marketplace and in the legislative environment, it has become more important than ever to build stronger relationships with state representatives and senators, and make Time Warner Cable the industry information resource. Time Warner Cable created “Working-at-the-Texas-Capitol-is-NO-Picnic” Kits as an integral part of a multi-layered campaign to enhance government relations in Texas. The kits included often overlooked supplies for those working breakfasts, lunches and dinners, as well as a luggage-tag style contact list. Wrapped in a touch of humor and respect for the hard work of elected officials and their staff, the kits created a positive relationship that continued beyond the State of Texas’ 80th Legislative Session.
