“Do lawyers make good politicians? Yes, but so do dentists and doctors and teachers and police…Good politicians don’t come in one shape or form. They are people who represent the community, and they have to be able to connect with the community, they have to be able to advocate for the community, and they have to be able to understand what the needs and priorities of the community are.”– Prof. Ros Dixon
