Where dreams go to work!
It's very important that we don't get discouraged!
Significant legislation often takes more than one session. Let's address any "weaknesses" in the bill and submit a "new and improved version in 2012." Let's gather more statistics and more allies. At a minimum we should get all the affected unions on board ... and the mayors of every county. We know from the votes this year who are our allies. In October/November we should spend time "stroking" our allies and educating those who were not supportive. Now that the session is over, we can change our focus and develop stronger ties with the Governor's Office. Governor Abercrombie is very creative in identifying other avenues for assistance.
