In a recent letter to the editor, Guy Crockroft wrote an excellent letter about HB 182. It is very rare for a legislative aide to be named in a letter to the editor, and I feel as I have finally been recognized.
I was disappointed that my boss, Rep. Pete Kott, was referred to as Black Beard. My boss served in the U.S. Air Force and I in the U.S. Navy. He is clean-shaven and my beard is now silver, but the fly boys always get the glory.
I must reflect on the concept of the role of government protecting citizens from themselves. Anyway getting revenue from tourists seems like a good idea.
