In response to the letter regarding the traffic jam. How dare the writer complain that the fallen officer was not from Forest Park? Honor the badge, whichever badge that officer wore. As you pointed out, it was one day. This is not an everyday occurrence. We in Forest Park were notified. In that respect, I am disappointed in the Review not offering that as a side note to the letter.

In response to Forest Park leadership, in my opinion the mayor should be the last one to express himself, allowing the commissioners to say their take on the issue without possible bias, sway or influence from the mayor. Leadership allows others to take part in the debate and decision process; otherwise it is not leadership but dictatorship.
