Our Chapter President & V. President were back in the L.O.B. today. Their initial meeting was behind schedule, but one of our President's old school chums popped in for a visit. Turns out she works for an Assemblyman, too, Mike Fitzgerald.. By the time they wrapped up their meeting with her, they chatted with Pat Fahy's Legislative Aide...and then Pat Fahy, herself. Turns out Patricia Fahy is an avid bicyclist and understands the dangers of being "vulnerable". 3 meetings in 90 minutes and BOTH Assembly members should be behind this 100%. We call that PROGRESS, brothers & sisters. These 2 guys making positive progress!!
