Lawmaker’s column a breath of fresh air, glimmer of hope


What a breath of fresh air — a glimmer of hope! Sen. Patrick Flood’s op-ed piece in the Jan. 8 newspaper should be hung on every legislator’s wall — the one facing his/her desk, in big bold print — as a constant reminder that “Lawmaking is a responsibility that requires civil discourse, willingness to listen.”

Every word of Flood’s message is pertinent and vital to our country’s getting back on track. Winthrop is extremely fortunate to have such a senator in the Legislature. Would that every legislator and member of Congress could read and heed these words of wisdom and necessity.
