Michael at Best Destiny points out the inconsequential, do-nothing record of his and my state representative Sara Gagliardi – and the representative for most of Arvada, Colorado:
Among things she did NOT sponsor, she did manage to join her party voting to extend unionization into the state government (which had to be vetoed, only to reappear via Executive fiat . . .er, order); she did manage to vote against increasing academic requirements for graduation, but vote to create standards for Sex Education in the schools.
So the entire track record of Sara Gagliardi’s first year in office as a part of the majority was:
–no academic standards
–Sex Ed standards
–banned smoking in casinos, which encroaches on personal rights and hurt casinos financially
Pretty impressive. Feeling good about MY representation.
One more reason to cast my vote for common-sense candidate John Bodnar. In fact, my John Bodnar for State House yard sign arrived this morning: first of the political season. Now I just have to trim the front yard to give it a more sightly background. To match the yard sign, I have posted a John Bodnar sign on the sidebar – my virtual blog “yard.”
