Kudos to County Commissioners Dennis DeWitt and Ken Haggard (Bee-Picayune article Aug. 8) for not joining other members of the court to vote for a 5 percent raise for themselves. It’s disappointing that the majority vote by the county court imitates actions taken by our legislators at the national level, who likewise vote themselves raises as they choose. Locally, this vote reflects a lack of sensitivity by three individuals during hard economic times.

Thank you, Mr. DeWitt and Mr. Haggard, for putting your constituents first.
