I am so grateful for your support.
Over the past few weeks, we've accomplished some things no one thought we could. We made some major strides on important issues -- and I wanted to take a moment to recognize how much I've valued your insight, your feedback and critiques, and your tremendous support throughout the process.
Big issues like health care reform touch us all deeply and stimulate strong, passionate debate. I've heard from many of you about your feelings on this -- from anger to excitement, frustration to hope. What I think distinguishes us in Washington State is the way that -- no matter how our opinions may differ -- we can remain civil and constructive, always building bridges, seeking positive ways to make our community stronger, and listening with respect to each other.
I know good listeners make stronger leaders -- so I want to know what you think.
With the first health care fight behind us, I want to hear what you think is the most important issue to confront next.
I am ready to dig in on Wall Street reform, push clean energy to the forefront, and make sure we pass other measures to grow the economy and create more new jobs.
What do you think should be at the top of our priority list? Let me know -- click here and tell me which issue you think is most important.
Thanks again for your support and for taking the time to give me your feedback -- together we can continue to accomplish great things.
Very truly yours,
Member of Congress
