Mary Bono Mack breaks her wrist snowboarding, plans to work on book

Mary Bono MackFormer Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack will be spending the first weeks of her new civilian life convalescing. Bono Mack broke her wrist over the weekend while trying her hand(s) at snowboarding at a Colorado ski resort. But the injury won’t stop her from working on a new project: a book.
Bono Mack was, according to her official Twitter account, vacationing at Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort with husband Connie Mack when the incident happened.

First (above), Bono Mack tweeted about giving snowboarding a try on January 18. Then, on Sunday (Jan. 20), Bono Mack tweeted to share news of her injury with her 10,751 followers.

Her followers were quick to send their best wishes for a speedy recovery, with one even suggesting she seek medical attention from her Congressional successor, Dr. Raul Ruiz.

“Maybe Congressman Dr Ruiz can take a look at it ?! ;o),” tweeted DustDevil65.
Bono Mack recently told The Desert Sun’s Bruce Fessier she was working with a literary agent and was in talks with several cable news networks about a possible on-air gig with her husband.

Ground-level interviews at Dr. Ruiz’s watch party

This is Javier Martinez’s first political gathering of the sorts. I stopped to talk to him while he and his wife, Angelica, grabbed some food.

He told the Desert Sun:

“I’m here because I want to celebrate when Ruiz takes office.”

“We need a change. Mary Bono Mack’s been in for a while. Most of her campaign is… was slander — not about what she’s done all of these years while she has been in office. I think it’s time for a change — see what Ruiz can do.”

“This is my first election.”

“We’re looking forward to a lot of things. The economy… Our school, I know we’ve had a lot of cuts. Maybe he can help out there.”
