Send Pam Tucker over there.

Send Pam Tucker over there. I think she can part the Red Sea.

Why are some of you always so

Why are some of you always so rude? Pam just does her job and she does it quite well. Niko, you would never say that in person or to her face. Anonymity is cool, ain't it?

Pam is a publicity seeker.

Pam is a publicity seeker. Her name is in everything. I'll tell her that to her face.

Where is her name in this

Where is her name in this article? Huh? Cat got your tongue? Let us know after you call her with your opinion. It is clear from your previous posts that you are in law enforcement. Hmmm. A little professional jealously it looks like.

My bet is that Pam can take

My bet is that Pam can take out both Niko and areyou with one arm tied behind her back. Neither of those guys have seen the outside of their parents' basements in years, all they do is sit in front of their parents' laptops playing some wierd medieval dragon slaying game and occasionally venturing over to the Chronicle website.

Standing, I agree with you.

Standing, I agree with you. I read this site for information, but some of the things people say in the comments section scares me. Let me tell you, as a resident of CC, I like the fact that Pam is ready, willing, shows urgency, and out in-front of all possible issues/disasters. Go Pam!

Yeah, I gotta admit that Pam

Yeah, I gotta admit that Pam Tucker knows her job and does it well. It is certainly not her fault that the media constantly seeks her out for her opinion or for information...I mean that is part of her job. No need to rag her for it.

I have known Pam since she

I have known Pam since she was the secretary for the Richmond County Civil Defense director. George relied on her for a lot. She learned the job and learned it well.
I have never known her to be a glory seeker or a big headed person. I feel that she is trying to look out for the good of the citizen of Columbia County.
