So glad to hear of his continued recovery! I'm looking forward to his eventual return to public service, in the role that he has held with such high esteem for so long. future election bids? He's got my vote!

So glad to hear that Congressman DeSaulnier has finally been released from the hospital. What a fighter. Can't wait to see him back to work. He's a great congressman, and I hope he'll represent us for many more years.
