I am a concerned citizen, but I am not a lobbyist. A lobbyist is paid to represent one side of an issue and to sway legislators to either pass or defeat legislation that is preferred by those paying the lobbyist. As a concerned citizen, I have the right to vote for people that I wish to represent me and my views while engaging in the rigors of that particular public office. I also have the right to contact my elected representative any time I wish, and to let that representative know what my concerns may be regarding a particular issue. I will never be paid to speak with my elected officials as a concerned citizen, and it is not likely that anyone will pay for my $1000 bottle of wine while speaking with my elected representative. One more difference between me and a lobbyist: My elected official is accountable to me as a voter and a taxpayer. No elected representative is accountable to any lobbyist, nor should they be.
A concerned citizen is not a lobbyist simply for communicating their concerns to their elected representative. In this regard, I must say "No! It does not sound like any concerned citizen could be a lobbyist."
