When I look at these bills, I honestly think about the kids in my class — ‘what would this do to her, what would this do to him?' I think about the people in my community and how it would affect them, and I don’t really see that in these representatives. I don’t see them mulling over how it will impact the community when they write bills or vote on them, and it’s very frustrating to me as a teacher and a parent. That’s something I would hope to change.- Jessica Piper
