      This really is a first for me, announcing in public my support for a Congressional candidate. I spent 30 years as a newspaper reporter, then six years running a nonprofit, so it was inappropriate for me to support candidates officially and openly. But this year, I’m speaking up. We can’t allow the reign of the […]
