Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
Just as we in Alberta were all proud when our beloved Canadian Football League (CFL) Edmonton Eskimos went the distance & won the Grey Cup; we have Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer acting as a cheerleader when an Oregonian sports team is victorious. Its great to promote student & professional healthy athleticism.
"But under the leadership & direction of Coach Caleb Porter, the Timbers stayed focused, made course corrections that led them to a national championship, finishing with a flourish."
