Brady and LWVSRQ Meet with Elected Officials
On August 30, Carol Rescigno and Carol Hartz met with state Senator Greg Steube and in a later meeting, with Sally Dionne, District Director, U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan. Carol Rescigno serves as President, Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Sarasota County Chapter. Carol Hartz is the chair of the LWVSRQ Gun Safety Committee.
In both meetings, Rescigno and Hartz described their organizations’ gun safety goals and asked the representatives to support specific bills to make us safer. Although Sen. Steube did not offer to support any of the specifically proposed bills, he did engage in a dialogue about gun safety.
Ms. Dionne took notes during her meeting and expressed a willingness to advise Mr. Buchanan of our specific requests.
Carol Rescigno will coordinate with LWVF Vice President Patti Brigham to provide more information to both officials.by
