Letters to the editor: April 28, 2017

Re: April 15 article, “CPS investigator: Is this the hardest job in Texas?” I am responding to your question — “CPS investigator: Is this the hardest job in Texas?” — with an unequivocal “Yes!” I speak from personal experience — 23 years as Child Protective Services caseworker and supervisor in...
