Bridges to a Better Government E-Newsletter for February 15, 2013

Bridges to a Better GovernmentThank you for reading my e-newsletter! I’ll be sending out new editions weekly as the 2013 legislative session progresses. Please feel free to forward this to any of your friends who might want to recveive it as well. The more participation we can generate, the better representation you will have in state government.
