Don't confuse pols with public servants

In your Nov. 17 editorial, you provided some confusing terms which can cause concern among readers. You seemed to equate "so called public servants" to those who usually are staff members in professional, administrative, and clerical positions working in governmental agencies.

What you should have focused on was "elected officials" in your editorial. These elected individuals are a far cry from those professional, nonelected public workers who dedicate their careers to helping solve problems by implementing laws and rules passed by these "elected officials."

So please do not lump these "elected officials" in with those excellent people who come to work each day to better the lives of residents, be they called federal or state civil servants, or general governmental employees, as they are the true "public servants."
