Over the past few years, members of our local legislative delegation have taken positions on issues that are different than those expected of them by their political parties. This happened again this past week. We are not all going to agree on what is right or wrong, but I for one appreciate our elected officials thinking through the issues from all sides, looking at consequences and long-term effects.  

While it is easy to take the bumper sticker positions we so often see, it is refreshing to see our politicians supporting what they truly believe.
