Letter to the editor: Time for party-line Republicans to goFrederick Hess’ “Kieffer didn’t stand up for gay marriage” letter in last week’s Bulletin should tell people all they need to know about Rep. Andrea Kieffer and her conversations vs. her votes.
Frederick Hess’ “Kieffer didn’t stand up for gay marriage” letter in last week’s Bulletin should tell people all they need to know about Rep. Andrea Kieffer and her conversations vs. her votes. It does not surprise me that she told Frederick what he wanted to hear and then voted the way she did on the marriage amendment issue.
One thing we all have experienced is the actions of Kieffer and our other Republican representatives is that none of them have the inclination to do anything but blindly follow orders and directives of their caucus leaders. None of the three of our legislators in the old District 56 did anything other than vote as the caucus dictated.
I would surely love to be able to say that my representative will not blindly follow, but will challenge ideas from their caucus leaders that are detrimental to any of their constituents. I would love to be able to say my representative voted against the caucus when it is in the best interest of our residents here in Woodbury. I have every intention of voting against both of the current legislators that will be on the ballot in our newly formed Senate district because they failed to do that when they should have.
I will be supporting Susan Kent and Ann Marie Metzger for election to those positions and urge those in the other half of our district to support JoAnn Ward.
