I know this guy and he's a great person and big craft beer supporter...

OREGON CONGRESSMAN TO ADDRESS CRAFT BREWERS

Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-Oregon) will deliver the keynote speech at the
Craft Brewers Conference (CBC) in Chicago. The conference itself runs April
8-10, with judging for the World Beer Cup bi-annual competition in the days
before. More than 1,600 of the world’s leading brewers, brewery owners and
brewing supply professionals are expected to attend. Congressman DeFazio,
himself a homebrewer, co-founded and co-chairs the House Small Brewers Caucus
in Washington, D.C. Bringing together more than 60 U.S. Representatives, the
Caucus strives to educate Congress about the unique issues and challenges
faced by America’s small brewery businesses.

He's a good friend of my neighbor's and I see him there every year for a cider pressing party.  He loved my Rye IPA!

See that's good. Knows what is important to many of his constituents up there in "beer-n-hop" country. Seems to me you have the right man for the job!
