Listen up. A few minutes ago, you dismissed me on the basis of my dress and accent. But I'll tell you what: I will not have you dismiss the work that the fine men and my husband and I are recruited are doing in this region. They are healing the very streams and wildlife habitats that some of you in this room have worked very hard to protect! You need their work as much as they need yours. But to join forces on behalf of the fish and wildlife we all want to see survive, you first have to acknowledge the value of men and women who care about the same things you do but don't talk about them with the same words you do.
