Robert, cordially, this is like comparing apples to cinderblocks.
Warren Judge was a local leader who helped move mountains of regulatory and frivolous special interest group obstruction obstacles to get this done. In a bipartisan manner, representing the best interests of his constituents. my opinion is that this would be an earned recognition of hard works, not a special participation award. Unfortunately, posthumously.
(And I posted without even saying he was a Democrat and we don't care how you do it up north...oops )
Your entitled to your opinion and I certainly respect it. I am sure Mr.Judge did what he was expected to do to get votes. So maybe in this particular case it is proper. That said, I like the Oregon Inlet Bridge. Give Mr. Warren a nice plaque to be placed somewhere on the bridge noting his accomplishments in regard to the new bridge.
Understood and appreciated, and certainly not seeking to get the last word...but I guess I may...
I have met, shook hands and exchanged pleasantries with politicians who seek only your vote. These are shallow and forgotten.
I have had the more pleasant experience of meeting elected officials who seek only to serve the citizens. These are genuine and remembered.
The Honorable Warren Judge succeeds in the latter category. Genuine. A fine man. And to Miss Tess, a fine person.
Service above self. Personified.
My, if only we could find more of these.
