How about compliment Mary with Gusto...and leave the rest off the political diatribe off that is diminishing in spirit of a woman who lives sans judgment. Plus Her blessed work has been done thru many, many administration. Congratulations Mary Jo for living a life in service of others!

A great lady who deserves to be honored! If there is a Saint among us it is Mary Jo. I am not Catholic nor am I speaking of politics,she is simply amazing. Her work with the poor and needy is beyond belief!

Kudos to Mary Jo!!!! I've volunteered with her for almost 20 years and have seen Mary Jo early in the morning and late in the evening and she is always there ready to help, ready to ask what can I do for you. Imagine a world where everyone had the compassion that Mary Jo has lived her whole life. Mary Jo Copeland is an inspiration to all those who want to build a better world. God bless Mary Jo Copeland!!!!

My opinion , and my alone, but i just can't put someone on a pedstal, a saint i would not go that far, a good person yes, but she has her picks on who she helps. you have to be in a real big crisis to be helped by this lady, I worked and had to move, she did not help me not once, just because i worked, doesn't mean that i don't deserve to get help as well as the next, it was an emergency, but she refused helping me out, like i said its my opinion, never care for her since then,
