Save the world.
In the flurry of votes on the last day of the regular legislative session long time members of the House who will not be returning for the next regular legislative session (due to the eight year term limit or not seeking reelection) can be recognized to speak while the board is still open and other members have yet to vote.
Representative Stacey Newman (D), the most senior member of the House – serving nine years due to a special election, was recognized to speak towards the end of yesterday’s session. She recognized and thanked her family, staff, and colleagues. She also stated that she will remain active in the issues of our public life.
Tikkun olam. Save the world. It’s an obligation that doesn’t end.
“Do all the good you can, for all the people you can, in all the ways you can, for as long as you can.”
There is a difference, Eric Greitens (r).
