A great legislator needs to be hard-working, intelligent, pragmatic, and ethical.

A legislator who fails any of those tests will not be able to build coalitions for forward-looking legislation that helps the country and it’s constituents.

Such representative who will create an enabling atmosphere for our people to breath well and be given what belongs to them is here.

A legislature must be effective at selling his vision for the country’s and his contlstituency for the overall direction of it’s people.

A senator must effectively represent the interests of their constituents.

And in order for history to judge them favorably, the policy positions the legislator advocated for must stand the test of time.

I don’t think history will look kindly upon the folks most adamantly opposing equal rights for our people.

Legislators must also be able to work with their colleagues and get some of their key goals enacted into law.

When something truly critical is politically unpopular, a good legislator will have the willingness to do what is right instead of what is politically expedient.
