Best State Legislator

Glen Maxey

This perennial favorite of readers has come a long way since the days when he was openly shunned by his fellow legislators for being the only openly gay representative under the Dome. Today, the still only openly gay rep is counted among the elite corps of mover-and-shaker lawmakers in the seniority-driven House. Even the most conservative legislators sidle up to Maxey and ask sweetly, "Can ah count on yew to hep me on my bill, Glen?" As Maxey ponders whether he should leave office or run for re-election, let's hope the rep will consider this here readers' poll when he makes his decision.
