"Thank you Senator Zehnder! I have been a regular attendee at the legislature for over a decade, and I want to compliment your work in this new role on several levels, and I am very proud that you are "my" Senator in replacing Dr. Shiozawa. First, you were thoughtful, careful and compassionate in your handling of difficult issues while being fiscally responsible. Second, your expertise in the area of health care and health policy were evident and quite valuable. Third, I greatly appreciated your regular communications to your constituency, the "video house calls" and other messages. Finally, thank you for being open to hearing the concerns of your constituents, knowing that may sometimes be conflicting, but being willing to represent those concerns to our legislature (even if it was not the most popular comments to be shared)."
