We are excited to announce our Legislative Quarterback, lobbyist Buck Humphrey! Buck has been retained under contract to proactively promote the advocacy agenda of the Pharmacy Advocacy Task Force (PATF)(formerly known as the Pharmacy Practice Act Joint Task Force) through the 2017 Legislative Session. This financial lobbying commitment will be shared equally with our colleagues at the Minnesota Society of Health Systems Pharmacy (MSHP).
Buck Humphrey is an experienced government affairs and public relations executive with relationships and a track record with political leaders in Minnesota, throughout the Midwest and in our Nation’s Capital. For more than twenty years, Buck has worked at the intersection of the private and public sectors on issues at the federal, state and local levels. He knows and has worked with Governor Dayton, the minority leaders, speakers and much of the Minnesota Senate and House legislative membership. He has similar relationships with state capital leaders throughout the Midwest and around the country. Over the past 4 years, Buck has been on the lobbying team that has passed MAC transparency provisions and build a bipartisan patient pharmacy network access coalition. He is an experienced lobbyist, knowledgeable about our issues and with a strong desire and commitment to move our agenda.
As we have made a commitment to him, we need a commitment from you! We are calling on you to get behind our efforts, to actively participate in the education of our citizens and legislators. We are also calling on you to contribute financially to these efforts.
