Messitte reflects on Elliot Richardson’s leadership
An opinion piece by President Zach Messitte was published March 24 by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“Where have you gone, Elliot Richardson?” addresses Messitte’s views on politicians doing the right thing.
“Congressional committees, FBI investigations and leaked intelligence information into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, the example of Elliot Richardson’s five months as the nation’s top legal officer more than four decades ago remains a profile in courage that the country is sorely lacking today. Richardson’s story shows that even with our constitutional checks and balances, we still need our leaders to do the right thing when called upon,” writes Messitte.
