I am a single mom who just started working for the federal government one week before the shutdown. Ironically, I left my job as an office manager for a local start up technology company for a more secure job. I am an active volunteer in my community and as the PTO President of the local middle school, I have been volunteering during my time off. I want to implore my representative, Eric Cantor, to pass a clean bill in the House so I am able to get back to work helping our active duty military and their families. If Congress only sends a few government employees in high profile areas back to work, that would not help me and many of the federal employees that are constituents.
