The qualities I admire most about state Rep. Gail Lavielle are how genuinely friendly she is with everyone she meets and just how hard she works. No one works harder than Gail, and she makes it look so easy. Why? I am sure it is because she loves what she does. This lady loves the arena of public policy. She is not looking for a patronage job. She works for everyone of us.

So not only do you get the experience of someone who understands public policy but one who works so very well with her counterparts. In these acrimonious political times it is rare to find a public servant liked on both sides of the aisle. Even the democrats would miss Gail should she step down.

Until then, keep Gail as "our" public servant by voting for Gail Lavielle. We all need her.
