'No' vote based on ethics, funding
I would be remiss if I didn't respond to the deceitful letter to the editor by Representative Adam Jarchow regarding my vote on Assembly Bill 712 (AB 712), legislation authored by him that would put our law enforcement in the predicament of having to ignore federal and state law and...
