There was a line of 50 - 65 people alongside of Hwy 50 by East Central College showing their support for this soldier and his family. There were many small flags being held. It was quite moving. Rest in peace, Sgt. Traxel. 10 months ago
Were you there? I don't think so..........Jun 8, 2011
In any other job where the position has any customer contact, you absolutely can NOT upset your customers. Why does this public servant think he should be any different than the rules of any other industry. In fact, public service is even more so because everything you do is FOR THE CITIZENS you represent. Or at least, that's they way it's supposed to be. Even when you disagree with someone, you can respectfully disagree with them and end the conversation. A person in another industry that handled a "customer" the way this state senator did would have been fired on the spot. Shameful behavior senator. Jun 8, 2011
Well said sir. Couldn't agree more about the disconnect between his rhetoric and his actions. Jun 1, 2011
So if our State Senator is so worried about his family in his current hometown (which he already stated is a "safer area" than other places he has lived), how DOES he cope when he is away from home 4 days a week while the legislature is in session? Seems a bit hypocritical to single out this trip (to a millionaire-funded, right-wing think tank) when he spends nearly half a year away from his home in Washington.
Sounds like Mr. Nieves is talking from both sides of his mouth - his wife and family are under attack and need protecting, yet WATCH OUT if you meet his wife at the Captiol -- she can take on "thugs" by herself! I think Mr. Nieves needs to practice his storytelling at the Washington Library, not in the local newspaper. Jun 1, 2011
