Elected officials should represent all constituents

To the Editor:

I have a couple questions for all the incumbents that squeaked by the midterm election by getting just over 50 percent. Do you feel good about 50 percent when all that means is every other person you meet wants you out of office? If you get half the people after years in office, for example 16 years, do you think it’s a ringing endorsement of your perfromance? If you don’t really care if you’re re-elected, as one caniddate let slip, why are you there? Do all of the corporate contributions really go towards the campaign? If I got 50 percent, I would change my attitude, my image and my work ethics and start listening to the people. Your work for us and 2020 isn’t far.

To all the candidates that said the Master Matrix needs to be looked at, I have kept your quotes and unless you were just paying lip service and looking for votes, then next session is time for action. Just like the election, 50 percent, on the Matrix isn’t good enought and it’s not cutting it.

To everyone, you don’t help the divisiveness when you call it a divided Congress. You should call it a balanced Congress where bills can be debated and not bullied through.
