My long-time friend and political ally Roberta Gassman will be honored Monday by the UW-Madison School of Social Work as a distinguished alumnus and public servant. There is no one more deserving.

The details about the program, and Roberta's exemplary resume, are here. Government runs on energy and commitment and big ideas - - Roberta has fought that fight, for decades.
(If I had paid more attention to her advice, and the time lines she constructed as manager of my 1979 Madison mayoral campaign, I am sure I would have won.)
I really regret that I will miss this tribute. If there is still time left to sign up, go for it.
Our congratulations to Roberta and her family.
