“After working for many years in the solar energy industry,” Britt said earlier today.
“I am particularly interested to learn about thepresident’s proposals on renewable energy. Besides energy, there are somany critical national issues at stake now – health care, jobs, theeconomy – that make this a truly historic moment. I suspect thatpassion will be running high in the president and all the members ofCongress. Television just cannot capture those feelings. I’m gratefulto Congresswoman Giffords for giving me the opportunity to be presentat this event.”
