I just returned from the National League of Cities Conference in Washington. During the trip, I was able to meet with members of our Congressional delegation, and I learned something from each of them and the many others here who work day in and day out for a more perfect union.
Congressman Tony Cardenas
Senator Barbara Boxer
Congressman Henry Waxman
As dissatisfied as most of us are about the results in Washington DC these days, know that the impressive leaders we met with this week and their staff, work extremely hard and face endless obstacles. But we can - and must, all do better, and this visit has re-enforced for me, that cultivating strong relationships fortifies our resolve to do so.
