Remembering the Legacy of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein

The death of California’s U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein is a time for reflection and remembrance, for what she accomplished and for the formidable barriers she successfully catapulted over during her over 63 years of local, state and national public service.

I was honored to talk with her several times, originally at national and state conferences and during my own congressional internship with the U.S. Senate in Washington, D.C. I’ve proudly displayed her picture and autograph in my Albany office, often asking myself in a tough situation how would the senator handle the matter?
