Before a crowd that included Gov. Jan Brewer, Rabbi John Linder of Temple Solel gave a “focus statement” supporting the governor’s Medicaid expansion proposal and other causes for the Valley Interfaith Project Spring Leaders Assembly on May 2 at Paradise Valley United Methodist Church.
“These last five years have been tough for our country and our state,” Linder told the assembly. “The economic crisis has wreaked havoc on peoples’ lives. There is not a soul in this sanctuary tonight that has not been adversely affected. We need one another. Am I right about that?”
