Re "Insurance regulator pushes for more power" (Page A1, Dec. 22): As I read the article about Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, I was personally offended by the author's characterization of Jones as "a publicity-seeking opportunist". Having known and worked with Dave Jones on various projects over the past 15 years, I can't help but wonder if we are talking about the same person. If ever there was a politician who cared about the people and worked every day to look out for their interests, it's him. He is one of the most honest politicians around. I have not always agreed with his political positions, but have always admired his sincerity. I, for one, appreciate all the time and effort he has expended over the years in order to protect the interests of the people.
