Kudos to Councilmember Coles

Often times, CAJD included, we are quick to jump on an elected official for what they do wrong, while never acknowledging what they do right. CAJD believes Councilmember Cole has done something right in taking a stand on the position that the City should consider hiring ex-offenders once they have paid their debt to society. Obviously Ms. Cole isn’t saying hire any Tom, Dick, or Harry. However, she seems to recognize that ex-offenders that have paid their debt to society should be able to obtain gainful employment so that they are less likely to re-offend and end up back in prison. Ms. Cole’s statement.
