I have an issue with politicians who seem to have a sense of entitlement and don't see anything wrong with using taxpayer money for unnecessary reasons. From my perspective such is the case with Arkansas Lieutenant Governor Mark Darr. Darr has been using state police at times to drive him between his home in Springdale and sites around the state so he can talk on his cellphone. He says he's doing it so he doesn't endanger himself or others. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported Darr has been chauffeured at least 4 times on long distance trips at tax payer expense since August. Really? I would like to get that service as well. I think we all would. I don't care what party a public service represents - you should not be using taxpayer funds for something like this. Do what the rest of us do- wait until you get where you're going or use a hands-free device. We expect public servants to treat our tax dollars better than their own. Those who do make this A Better Region 8.
