Carol Still Loves Sick Leave
Carol Schwartz' embrace of mandatory sick leave may have won her the toughest re-election battle she's ever faced in a three-decade political career, but that doesn't mean she's running away from her record.
Here's her rebuke to those pissed-off biz types—I tried to work with you people! "Through months of work in the Committee on Workforce Development and Government Operations, which I chair, I fashioned a compromise between the bill’s advocates and the business community...Then, after I amended it further to address concerns expressed by the business community, the bill received a unanimous vote of 13 – 0, and was subsequently signed by the Mayor."
Other goodies on the site: A whole bunch of Classic Carol photos (that's a 1985 vintage shot above), plus links to befriend the councilmember and her campaign on Facebook. (She joins council colleagues Kwame R. Brown, Marion Barry, and Jack Evans on the social-networking site.)
