Interview Summary

Priddy (House 1970-1991, 45th district; Democrat) and her daughter Margie discuss legislation on drug abuse, police and firefighters, economic development, receiving threatening letters and phone calls, the effects of the demands of the being a legislator on family life, Priddy's hands-on approach to committee work, the importance of communication with constituents, political heroes, impressions of the six governors under whom she served, and a change in camaraderie among legislators. The interview concludes with what Priddy misses about the legislature, her twelve years as a member of the School Board, daughter Margie's inclinations towards running for office, and how the advent of separate offices for legislators has put additional layers of bureaucracy between themselves and their constituents.
