Really? HuhWhy, is it a big loss? My guess he is leaving before his job is consolidated with another position, and he will actually have something to do for eight hours each day. Good grief. What does it take to do that job?

Before you answer that we all know the answer is no. But that's where us collectively are failing and the politicians are laughing all the way to the bank. Its hard to find the honest ones, but believe it or not they exist. But too many of us aren't open minded enough to give credit across the isle. Wake up people!

Wow that's the second big vote that one of Moores men were absent. That contact may not have passed otherwise. Well, I guess if Moore voted affirmative so would have Hobrook. At least they get paid for not being there to make the tough decisions and vote.
