27TH DISTRICT: Both candidates show sense of entitlement

Although the contents spoiled my breakfast, thank you for your Page 1 articles on candidates Jake Fey and Laurie Jinkins. One clearly enjoys double-dipping in the public retirement system while the other is not at all bothered by playing loose with federal Hatch Act limits on running for office. Both are happy to take their current taxpayer-funded salaries while engaging in personal decisions that should outrage taxpayers.

What a sense of entitlement from each 27th District candidate. Just one more reason many of us are frustrated with the elitist viewpoint of many people in government. Now who do I vote for in this race?
