I have brought up the following comments on the CD 8 race from the end of a long series of comments as worthy of note:
Have you noticed that she (Giffords) has what NO ONE ELSE in the race has - a progressive voting record?
Consider that she won an award for being the main sponsor of the mental health parity bill in 2004 - this was a goal of the late, great Senator Paul Wellstone.
She has voted to expand access to health care for kids and the working poor.
She had a 100% voting record from the League of Conservation Voters - a pro-environmental group.
She got a bill passed to get developers to put gray-water systems into new houses, allowing those houses to REUSE water.
She worked with neighborhood activists in Tucson to take on the billboard industry.
These are just a few of the things she's done in her FIVE YEARS in the State Legislature. And she did this before the other candidates even got involved in politics.
Isn't this the stuff we're all fighting for?
