  •  John Hall, Congress, NY-19 (5+ / 0-)

    One of four Progressive Caucus members who did not get re-elected. Elected in '06, re-elected in '08. Noted locally for support of green technology/jobs (got a green plant built here) and for support of veterans -- was chair of House Veterans' Affairs Committee's Subcommittee on Disability Affairs, supported increases in funding for the VA, Post 9/11 GI Bill, etc.

    Prior to '06 this was historically a Republican district and gerrymandered to remain so. I had hoped that with a mensch like John Hall it would become historically Democratic. Volunteered many hours for his campaign, and was saddened by this loss, but in my eyes he's "still the one."

    Vote John Hall for Congress, NY-19 in 2012

      the district lines will get moved around.

      Would be great if somehow they resulted in a seat that looked good for Hall to run in again....

      Once social change begins,it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read...You cannot oppress people who are not afraid anymore.
