Re-elect nobody

To the Editor:

Re-elect representatives, really?

From the president to a junior congressman, I can’t think of anyone worthy of retaining their elected position.

No one seems to be fulfilling their fiscal stewardship responsibilities or their charge to speak for the public. Today’s governing seems to be based on political affiliation versus the public’s opinion.

During the next election, my vote will be with anyone who runs on a platform based on common sense and majority rule.
