Wow… history made!!
Super honored I got to be there in the Senate of California as the first woman, and first out member of the LGBTQ community took the oath of President Pro Tem.
As she said… “It’s the first time, and it’s about time.”
I love moments like this. It’s been an honor to work with her over the years. Thanks President Pro Tem Atkins!!!
On a side note, our robotic rise and fall TeleSteppers also made history as the first presidential teleprompters inside the California Senate.
While we normally use the TeleSteppers to adjust the height of the glass for different speakers, she was the only speaker. The camera crews and news teams covering the historic event appreicated that we were able to retract the glass out of their shots. The mirrors were down and hidden during the other speakers, then discreetly rising to be at the perfect level for Senator Atkins. During the well-deserved applause at her conclusion, I lowered the glass back down to hide it out of the photographers’ shots.
I love this technology. So easy to use, and so solid!! Yay TeleStepper!!
