Featuring

Senator Morgan Carroll

Senator Carroll is the author of Take Back Your Government: A Citizen's Guide to Grassroots Change, a courageous political leader, the Senate Majority Leader and a strong advocate for citizen lobbying at the State Capitol.

This interview at this link is a bit out-dated, but it gives you a good sense for who Senator Carroll is and why you will be happy if you get a chance to meet her and hear her speak! The first part is reproduced below.

I got the chance to interview Morgan Carroll yesterday. How someone can be that positive & energetic after years in the sausage factory is amazing. And in the unusual (unique?) category, her entire discussion was about increasing participation in the legislative process by citizens without a word about Morgan Carroll. Not even a word about her specific legislation. Nothing about her at all until I started asking her some questions that drove the conversation that way. So the first 20 minutes or so were about participation - and how legislation is poorer for a lack of any participation by the voters. The average bill gets zero comments from citizen. Most of the rest get one.
