Garrett Gets Breast Cancer Award

With everything else going on, I didn't write about Representative Scott Garrett getting an award we can all be proud of. The National Breast Cancer Coalition gave Garrett a Certificate of Excellence award for his perfect voting record on issues regarding seeking a cure and treatment. This is what Fran Visco, NBCC President said about Garrett:
The National Breast Cancer Coalition appreciates Representative Garrett's leadership and dedication in helping us achieve our goal of eradicating breast cancer. As one of the Senators and Representatives to support all of our priorities, he has shown himself to be committed to substantive breast cancer policy.
As I noted in an earlier post, Garrett recently added our District's support to the Federal funding of research centers to study possible environmental factors involved with breast cancer. While it's easy to say that every Representative could get this sort of award, the fact is that they don't. With everything I've written lately about what Garrett is doing wrong, I think in the interest of fairness it is important to point out the good things he does and this is one of them. This is one area where Garrett has consistently been good; and our District and nation are being served very well.
