Senator Mary Caferro and Sheila Hogan for Jesse Laslovich

Shares

I had the opportunity to attend an event for Democratic Attorney General candidate Jesse Laslovich last night in Helena, hosted in part by Senator Mary Caferro and Sheila Hogan, two women I respect immensely, in large measure for their commitment to alleviating poverty. In this short video clip from the event, Senator Caferro and Sheila Hogan explain why they  are supporting Jesse Laslovich for Attorney General.

Caferro spoke specifically about Laslovich’s work in 2003 to fight for Health and Human Services in the face of proposed enormous cuts from the Republican governor and Legislature.

It’s unfortunate, given the enormous individual and societal impact of poverty, that our political leaders often forget those who most need our help and I’m impressed that Laslovich saw the need to work for those services.

The other part of Senator Caferro’s message that was important to me was the idea that primaries can be good for the party. I look forward to a spirited contest about ideas and qualifications, not labels, between the Democratic candidates—and hope we get it.
