Jenkins voted his conscience

POSTED: January 11, 2012 1:00 a.m.

The Times on Sunday was a special gift to citizens who try to keep up with actions of elected officials. Please accept my sincere thank you.

Wyc Orr's article on the late Ed Jenkins was another plus. I will always remember a time when the congressman was about to vote on a very controversial measure. He called a press conference in Gainesville and said something like: I've given this measure a lot of study, and I want you to know that I'm not going to vote the way you want me to vote. I must vote what I believe is right.

He was re-elected again that year and the following years.
