I’m also in support of the bill – but I think it should be made contingent upon the newly-elected mayor resigning his State Legislative seat. There are still many, many people of out work (my one year anniversary is this month), and even a paid, representative position would help someone else struggling with unemployment.

PS. By the way – my UI benefits were suddenly cut-off this week. I hope our State reps are aware of the problem and many of us suddenly find ourselves unable to pay March rent or mortgages.
