State Senator John Sampson was just arrested for embezzling $440,000 and now joins a long list of elected officials who think they are above the law.
These men and women in government have forgotten why they were elected, and that is to serve the people who put them into office. We need to elect people that are dedicated to those principles and values that best serve the people.
If I was elected to office, I would know why I was there. I would be dedicated to my fellow citizens who put their trust in me. Too bad there are few politicians who don't think like that.
