Ill-served in Illinois

Published: Wednesday, April 24, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

To the Editor:

The cry still resonates in our Illinois, “we are ill-served,” still. The latest example we have in Washington D.C., is Congressman Peter Roskam.

We elect time and again the same mopes who do the bidding of others, who claim and promise everything.

Rep. Roskam will not permit phone calls to his offices by his constituents. Why? Perhaps a fear grips a person that it leaves them cold.

Our elected representatives work for us. Why do they, including Roskam, forget who they work for? Sen. Dick Durbin still is a lackey of the Obama administration, as is Sen. Mark Kirk.
