Left to right: Eileen Pangione, Diane Magida, Joanne Goodwin, Fran Schreiber, Carolyn Edelstein, Kathy Carr and Mary Manupella said a very public thank you to Florida Congressman Alcee Hastings
The women held signs with slogans including: “Alcee, He’s our man, standing up against GOP Tax Plan,” “Alcee won’t make us pay for a rich person’s tax cut,” “Thank you Alcee” and others.
Mary Manupella served as the group’s spokeswoman. She said they thought it was important to let Congressman Hastings know how grateful they are that he stands up for his constituents.
“He has our back. When something like that GOP Tax Bill (is proposed), which is clearly going to hurt the middle class, representatives like Congressman Hastings are there to protect us and we wanted to make sure that he knew that we appreciated it and we thank him.”
