Play nice. Become friends. Be good communicators.
The National Center for State Courts and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government recently published a paper, “Keeping Courts Funded: Recommendations on How Courts Can Avoid the Budget Axe“, explaining how state courts can better advocate for funding by approaching the budgetary process proactively, effectively, and humbly.

Oh. Never mind.
