I was shocked that he called it pork, as far as I'm concerned (Sulzer) slapped the constituents of the 18th district across the face. I've worked with local officials on both sides of the aisle and on every level, and I've always found a way to (return) taxpayer dollars. We've had a good track record.Bob Ney
