Patricia Sharp: LaMalfa — self interest won’t fly anymore

Thank you, Susan Rogers, for calling out LaMalfa's lie in your recent column, "LaMalfa lied to get re-elected."

Lying is a form of cheating. The voters deserve better from their elected officials. We need leaders who develop skill negotiating and implementing policies that are in the public interest. Roughing up the other player by lying is not leadership.

The press fulfills an important role in keeping the public informed and our elected officials held accountable for their actions. This article helps to put LaMalfa and other public officials on notice that self interest before public service isn't going to fly anymore.
