Can May 4th “Star Wars Day” Become a National Holiday?

Everyone enjoys a day off.

Lobbyists at Fletcher, NC, based 56th Command Ltd. Inc. are hoping to turn May 4th, also known as "Star Wars Day", into a National Holiday. The company has even gone as far as creating a Crowd Sourcing campaign at Indiegogo.com, which can be found here:


When asked why a serious Lobbying firm would post a humorous video and take up a National Holiday as a cause, Founder and Legislative Policy Advisor, Chris Petrella said, “People have a low opinion of Congress and their ability to impact people's lives in a positive way. We want to bring positive attention to the processes of law creation and show that not everything that Congress does involves blame or “passing the buck.”"

Positive Customer Impact

56th Command Ltd. Inc. is a Federally registered lobbying company and a check on the Open Secrets website shows that their company concentrates on policy for Alternative Fuel Vehicles, including Electric and Compressed Natural Gas. According to Account Manager, David Woods, “Feed back from our clients has been overwhelmingly positive. They appreciated the effort and the humor. We have had a successful track record in both State and Federal policy and we don’t think this will hurt our credibility at all.” He went on to state, “We get asked about Crowd Sourcing all the time. What better way to advise a client, than to actually put yourself out there and do it?”

With 30 days left in their Indiegogo campaign, 56th Command Ltd, Inc. is confident that they will find the support they need to move this project forward.

"Who knows, even Congressmen would enjoy an extra day off," joked Mr. Petrella.
