Letter to the editor: Opinions about Rep. Hortman’s statement on ‘white males’

To the Editor:

Let me say this: You “good ole boys” are there at our bidding and are not being paid to sit and play cards understand? We expect you to be on the floor and listen, I say listen, to your colleagues commentary. It is called RESPECT and you might hear something you did not think of, an alternative solution for something on the floor or find out your about to lose something you find important for your district. The Legislature is not a frat house but the people’s house and we expect your undivided attention to getting the peoples work done.

You were properly “called out” by Rep. Hortman and I support her for doing so.
