As a woman and resident or Orange, I am proud to be represented by Themis Klarides in the state House of Representatives. Themis continues to operate in a very transparent, honest and effective manner, and I hope she is returned to office for another term. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and an appropriate time to highlight the victory and passage of Themis’s bill (Pubic Act 18-159). This bill ensures that women who have their annual breast cancer screening using 3D Breast Tomosynthesis technology will not have to make a deductible or co-payment on the insurance coverage. Also, I think it bears noting that depending on the election results, Themis could become Speaker of the House. If so, I know she would do an outstanding job in that position.
