Rep. Jetton puts own interests over constituents

Sunday, February 1, 2004

To the editor:

State Rep. Rod Jetton's interruption of Gov. Bob Holden was embarrassing to the people he represents and unprofessional. Jetton is in office to advance his own ego, not to represent the people of the 156th District. Our representatives should listen to the governor's address and disagree with it after it is over.

Republican leaders defended Jetton. The House minority floor leader said he should have better manners. I agree that the superintendent of the highway patrol should have removedJetton from the chamber.

Most of the time I vote Republican, but we know we need a good representative for the 156th District. Does anybody know one?
