Letters to the editor

Following are responses to an FCW.com poll question that asked, "Given an opportunity, would you work for the Homeland Security Department?"

I think Homeland Security is overdue. I would be willing to work there, but the location would be paramount in my decision. In my opinion, the one place it doesn't need to be is Washington, D.C.

I would consider working for Homeland Security for two reasons. One, I believe it is an important and necessary effort. Two, as an insider, I would be able to know just exactly how much information will be collected on citizens, and to what use it would be put.

My husband and I volunteer with the Red Cross, our local volunteer fire department and emergency management in Hardin and Tyler counties of Texas.

We are on the planning committee of the Lamar Institute of Technology's homeland security crisis management team, which is a regional endeavor to coordinate emergency management programs, as well as bring computer emergency response training and other aspects of our president's homeland security/defense programs into our locales.

We are, and will continue to be, honored to be a part of these efforts as volunteers.

Sunnie and Richard Baldwin
