Elected Official Roundup 3/11/11

Your roundup of our elected officials in the news:

Wisconsin Democrats: The best chance at change is at the ballot box

They know it and we know it. The only way to get worker's rights back, in Wisconsin and in other states passing simliar bills, is to vote.

How about running against these arrogant legislators and bringing union rights back in 2012?

We'll keep you updated on this as the story unfolds.

I remember my professors holding classes outdoors - but my state legislators holding office hours outside?
