Local legislator's comment cause a national stir
Farmington Rep. Pat Garofalo was sitting around the house watching NASCAR Sunday night — and sharing his thoughts on social networking site Twitter — when he decided to address a different topic. What he wrote got him more national attention than anything he’s done at the capitol.
“Let’s be honest,” Garofalo wrote on the 140-characters-or-less site. “70% of teams in the NBA could fold tomorrow + nobody would notice w/ possible exception of increase in streetcrime.”
