Shadid's 'sacrifice'

Johnny Roy August 17th, 2011

Regarding Clifton Adcock’s “Line in the sand” (News, Aug. 10, Gazette):

Central Oklahoma should be proud and thankful to have an astute individual in the person of Dr. Ed Shadid on the Oklahoma City Council.

I don’t personally know him; nor have I talked to him. We need and should encourage differing opinions from the council members. From what I can gather, this spine surgeon gains nothing from serving on the council, except as a personal and financial sacrifice. Otherwise, he could align himself with some of the members and be a rubber stamp.

—Johnny Roy
