"I never put words into peoples' mouths. So I was interested...they're feeding back the same things we've been saying." This is classic Tierney, and would be funny if it weren't so sad: the only things he hears, and the only things he wants to hear, are opinions that support his own positions. Anybody that has attended his meetings knows that he has no interest in hearing differing opinions, he only wants to tell you what he thinks. And he thinks what the unions tell him to think. It's time for somebody new to represent Burlington and the 6th District.
