TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has recorded a message for her Southern Arizona constituents.
In the message she says she is getting better and is anxious to get back to work representing those constituents. The message, which lasts about a minute, was recorded last week in Houston.
Since Giffords went to Houston for therapy, she has been kept updated by staff members about events in Congress and in her district.
The recorded message is available on the congresswoman’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/GabrielleGiffords
The following is the complete text of the congresswoman’s message:
Hello this is Gabby Giffords.
I miss you, I miss Tucson, the mountains, blue skies, even the heat.
I’m getting stronger. I’m getting better.
It has been a hard year – for all of us. Thinking of that day makes me sad. Six people died. Six innocent people. So many people hurt.
There is lot to say. I will speak better.
I want to get back to work. Representing Arizona is my honor.
My staff is there to help you. They keep me informed on your behalf.
I miss you, I miss home. I will see you real soon.
