Letter: Senator should focus on us

Posted

U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner says he is worried that paid out-of-state protesters are impeding his constituents' ability to reach him and express their legitimate concerns.

His actions, however, do not indicate that he actually wants to hear from his constituents:

  • He never publicly addressed the flood of phone calls, emails and rallies regarding the cabinet nominees.
  • He is refusing to schedule a town hall meeting while he is in Colorado doing in-district work during the Congressional spring recess or commit to one at a later date.
  • He does not advertise telephone town hall meetings on his website or in his newsletter and holds them at inconvenient times during the day.

His staff says that as a senator, Gardner has a busy and full schedule.  However, Sen. Gardner has time, as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, to fundraise for Republicans representing constituents in other states.

Who, then, does he represent?
