Your View: Giving credit

JOPLIN, Mo. — There is the old saying to “give credit where credit is due.” So, I shall.

I have approached the Joplin City Council and Jasper County Commission on two separate occasions on the issue of electromagnetic pulse and received no response either time.

I recently sent a letter on the same topic to Rep. Charlie Davis, R-Webb City, and added to it my concern for Obamacare coming into Missouri.

On Feb. 11, I received a direct and concise response from Mr. Davis. It was different that what I was expecting, yet it was totally satisfactory.

Finally, I was represented. Thanks, Rep. Davis.
