    I have used Hecker Transportation as one of my affiliates in Santa Barbara, and have had zero issues. I am not sure what the problem is with “Concerned Operator” and “Chris Hecker”. I do however understand Chris’s short and to the point reply on this blog posting. <br><br>As a women operator and member of the NLA, I will continue to support Hecker Transportation and I consider Chris and all of his team good people and friends. Most importantly, they are great affiliates that I can trust.<br><br>As for the “Concerned Operator”, you seem to have a lot of hatred hidden deep within your comments, maybe you need to move on and focus on more positive matters. Personal issues, opinions and anonymous unpleasantness should be dealt with separately and have no role in the business community. Not only is it unprofessional but unethical.<br><br>God bless,<br>Julie A.<br>
