Disconnect

My congressman, Cory Gardner CO-4, accompanied the governor, both senators, and a couple other representatives on a helicopter tour of our flood-ravaged countryside. Their tour got extra media attention because they had the chopper land a couple times to pick up stranded residents.

His weekly newsletter arrived in my inbox last night. In it, he devotes four sentences to the flood crisis. Four sentences. Then he devotes four paragraphs to emphasizing his commitment to defund and repeal Obamacare.



There's a reason I refer to him as my alleged representative.

1. Call his office and tell them what you think of his priorities.

 

And if there's any likely challenger for next year, do volunteer work for that person. I'm sort of guessing running for Congress yourself isn't feasible.

2. He knows what I think.

Which is why he ignores my correspondence; same for his local staff.

We do have a good man running for the seat. He's a political newbie, but a terrific guy who would put our interests ahead of his own aspirations. We're already doing everything we can to support him. We're going against every dollar that big oil and gas can throw into the race (Cory's their boy, bigtime). But people are starting to realize how badly we have been treated by that industry. We hope for the best, and energize that hope with boots on the ground.

And OMG you are soooo right that running is NOT feasible for me!
