Penny for your thoughts?
Penny knows that health care is a huge issue for all people. She understands that our school funding formulas are deeply flawed. She values the natural environment. She recognizes that the recession touches all of us, even in our relatively stable Happy Valley. Penny knows that money are tight all over, and it'll take tough decisions to make a state budget work.
I was pleased that Penny listened as much as she talked. When I told her about my classroom's windows, permanently stuck either open or closed because I can't lift or lower them, she knew I wasn't making it up. She also knew that my school isn't asking for extravagances; just basic maintenance that current funding doesn't cover.
Regular readers know my saying: All politics are local.
If you've read any of my posts on politics, you'll know I also believe that involvement is crucial. Folks, make an informed vote. Read. Think. Better yet, take some time and help out the candidate who makes the most sense to you.
For my district, State Assembly District 57, it's Penny Bernard Schaber. Stumble It!
