He was the District Director for Representative Gabrielle Giffords when she was shot in January 8, 2011 at the Safeway at Ina Road and Oracle Road during a Congress On Your Corner event. Mr. Barber was also shot in the thigh and face during the incident. He went on to win the special election to succeed Ms. Giffords and went on to win a full term in the U.S. House Of Representatives after that.
He was a really wonderful guest on the show along with Nicole Glasner, the Executive Director for the Autism Society Of Southern Arizona. Both were kind enough to pose for a picture.
I figure if I stand close enough to people who are accomplished and successful that maybe some of it will rub off. That is, if they don't suffocate from my cologne first.
