A response to a recent My Turn
In response to Ms. Nancy Rongstad's question, ``Who wants to work for DOT&PF?'' I do. I'm a DOT&PF employee and I'm proud of it. I believe Ms. Rongstad's letter is misleading. My work is interesting, challenging and I believe I'm contributing to the ongoing work effort of the department. I'm sorry she doesn't feel the same satisfaction in her work. There are always two sides to any issue. I say hogwash to her statement that the department infrastructure is crumbling and DOT&PF is experiencing workforce atrophy.
