PUBLIC FORUM: Letters from Sunday, Oct. 13, 2013

(Continued)

Next. Pass a law that any person running for office must sign a pledge that they will not accept any PAC (Political Action Committee) money and makes it illegal to accept or give PAC money to an elected official at the county, state or federal level.

Next, on the state level, pass a law that makes it illegal for anyone on a university board of trustees who was appointed by the very person that is applying for the president of that university, to vote on that subject.

How we should handle ambulance problem

For several years, I was involved with the first responders and Cass County EMS. As I read the paper of all of the changes since the hospital gave up the EMS service, I think back on how efficiently the service was years ago. We still have the capability of having a great service here in Cass County. As painful as the article about the city wanting to purchase an ambulance for the fire department was, it is the right move.
