Letter to the Editor

Jetton's comment was justified; he owes no apology

Tuesday, February 3, 2004

To the editor:

I applaud state Rep. Rod Jetton. Speaker Catherine Hanaway respectfully went above and beyond. Jetton's comment was justified.

Jetton owes no one an apology. I feel he acted in a way that fulfills his obligation to his office. He reacted to an adverse situation in a manner that accurately represents the attitude of the public that elected him. Best of all, he neglected the intimidation that was intended by the governor.

Bravo to Jetton, and bravo to Speaker Hanaway.
