Representational honesty

To the Editor:

Peter Roskam, when taking his oath of office, swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution. Despite that vow, he has, like other members of his party, pledged his genuine fealty to the neoconservative extremist Grover Norquist, who is neither elected nor mentioned in the Constitution.

I’m not personally enthusiastic about paying more taxes, but the notion that any representative of the people could even consider assigning his vote to anyone, much less a bully who makes his living off of peddling fear, is unconscionable.

Leslie Coolidge will bring representational honesty to her office. She has not sold her vote to a special interest. Her concern is in being a responsive, responsible and constitutionally sound member of the House.

When you check out Coolidge’s bona fides, you find a person who has spent an exemplary life in the private sector, who is now passionate about using her skills and experience in the public good.
