Should I alert Twitter and all my followers that rather than be the adults you were elected to be, they have decided once against to put yourselves above the people on your own little party first pulpit and turn your backs on solid legislation that would benefit the majority of your constituents? This is the real world ladies and gents. It is time you put on your big boy pants and the gallons of botox paid for by the taxpayers and do the job you were elected to do. This petty middle social me me me has gotten old.
It is pivotal we provide emergency service providers with the technology and resources they need to be able to perform their duties effectively.
