Character Counts program could help government officials

To the Editor:

Kudos to fired Special Agent Larry Hedlund, who committed the unthinkable when he reported a speeding auto containing Gov. Branstad to the proper officials, for paying the traffic fine of the trooper who was driving Branstad. And I think it wouild be fitting if we could enroll both Branstad and DCI Director Shari Paulson in the Character Counts program offered in Iowa’s public schools – because theirs sure don’t count for much.
