TEP President Christopher Sanders talks about the day here, in his blog, Grand Divisions.
"Mary Mancini deserves a big thanks for talking to all these folks," Sanders says. "But I’m so impressed with the personal stories of everyone who was interviewed."
In his blog, Sanders says TEP members visited 15 senators and 32 representatives. Rep. Stacey Campfield was a no-show for his appointment. Then he rescheduled, missing that meeting.
