    Congratulations to Rep. O’Connor on her perfect voting record.  However, congratulations are not forthcoming on many of the Legislature’s (and her) votes.

    “We tackled a number of major issues that should have been addressed years ago,” she said. “A lot of tough problems had been ignored or kicked down the road for somebody else to deal with. We rolled up our sleeves and did the heavy lifting that preceding Legislatures neglected to do.”

    Haha, okay, we get it. You’re proud of your work and no one else has ever worked as hard as you. I am however a little disheartened that she didn’t somehow manage to shoehorn in something about gathering around the kitchen table.
