Downing ads offensive


I am a US Navy Veteran with a service-connected disability. I am proud of the fact that I gave my utmost. After I retired from the Navy, I went back to school and earned a BA in Elementary Education and completed my graduate studies in Special Education. I found both positions (the Navy and teaching) to be very challenging and rewarding.

I resent Troy Downing’s implication in his television ad that teachers have an easy job – on the contrary, teaching requires hard work that is not financially well compensated…it is formidable work!

I find it distasteful and inappropriate to see politicians, such Troy Downing, use the bully pulpit as a mechanism to obtain an elected office. He is setting a poor example and defaming all Veterans with his bullying tactics.
