Rachel L. West, MSW, LMSW
The Political Social Worker
Arizona (believe it or not) has elected the United States first openly bisexual congresswomen. Kyrsten Sinema was in such a tight race with her opponent in Arizona’s 9th congressional district that the winner was not announced until today. Kyrsten won by 5,789 votes. Krysten also happens to be a Social Worker. Krysten earned her MSW from Arizona State University in 1999. She would go on to receive a JD from Arizona State College of Law and then a PhD in Justice Studies.
She is in favor of the DREAM Act, as a state rep she supported President Obama’s healthcare reform bill, and is strong on environment issues.
