Letters to the Editor

Letter: Why no answers, Peter Roskam?

To the Editor:

Peter Roskam does not communicate with his constituents. Please allow me a chance to ask him some questions.

Congressman,

Since you decline to tell me how you vote and why, Peter, I’ve got some questions that I’ll ask you publicly. Peter, you are my congressman. You hold no town hall meetings. You send no newsletters. Why is that, Peter?

Who, exactly, do you represent? The NRA? Climate change deniers? Big coal? Big oil? The Koch Brothers?

What are you doing to stop gun violence in schools? Do you believe public education ought to be strangled slowly but surely by cutting funding?

How about women’s rights? Do they have a right to choose to be pregnant or not?

So many questions. So few answers. Peter, are you just an empty suit?

You’ve gerrymandered yourself into being my congressman. But, Peter, baby, not into my heart.
