Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher: Farewell to the District (5/28/09)

Representative Ellen Tauscher, Congresswoman, 10th District of California
Dr. Gloria C. Duffy, President and CEO, The Commonwealth Club - Moderator

“Tauscherism” combines characteristics rare for politicians: pragmatic, professional and never afraid to stand up to leadership. After serving her constituents for over a decade, Congresswoman Tauscher bids farewell to the 10th District of California. From transportation to gay rights, nuclear weapons to family protection, Tauscher has strived to maintain the thoughtful, independent spirit that originally attracted the East Bay community to her candidacy. As she awaits Senate confirmation to become the next undersecretary of state for arms control and international security, Tauscher joins us to reflect upon her service to her community.

This program was recorded in front of a live audience at the Commonwealth Club of California on May 28, 2009.
