Letter: Lohmer won’t be like Rep. BunnRep. Julie Bunn showcased what kind of politician she is in her (May 28) viewpoint “Health care reform comments: Correcting the record.”
Rep. Julie Bunn showcased what kind of politician she is in her (May 28) viewpoint “Health care reform comments: Correcting the record.” It was discouraging to read her attacks on two private citizens.
Instead of improving her message or viewing the constructive criticism as a platform for further discussion, she patronizes her own constituents and neighbors. Her arrogance symbolizes what is wrong with this current legislative body: According to them, they are the only ones who speak the “truth.”
Instead of being a good listener and assessing the different interpretation of data, Julie Bunn decides to bully her own voters.
Bunn proved in her writing that she only values the feedback of those who agree with her; otherwise, they are wrong, inaccurate, simple minded-even dishonest.
We need someone who will be a statesman and engage in intellectual sharing; someone who welcomes free thought and those who want to talk policy outside of the box.
In the next election we may want to look elsewhere for representation. We have a person running for Bunn’s seat that won’t be condescending to us.
Kathy Lohmer has shown that she would act in opposite to Bunn’s knee-jerk response. She will take the time to listen and better inform the public, especially in light of feedback citizens provide.
When she says to contact her, she’ll mean it and build that relationship with all voters. Kathy will work to bring you to her point of view without using the tactic of public humiliation.
We need a statesman who will help lift those in doubt over to understanding and support, not continue the wall between an elitist government and the common people.
