Letter to the EditorJanuary 15, 2009
I am writing in reference to your article “Sun Herald investigation: “Officials travel the world on taxpayers’ dollars” that appeared in today’s paper (January 15, 2009).Each morning as Transportation Commissioner, I have a choice. I can:
1. Sit on the porch and have no expenses.
2. Go out in the field and work for the people that elected me and have expenses.
Wayne BrownSouthern District Transportation Commissioner
