‘Hid­ing from the pub­lic’

Rappahannock News - - EVENTS - C. A. ZIM­MER­MAN Huntly

It’s the same old thing. Pub­lic ser­vants hid­ing from the pub­lic. Den­ver Rig­gle­man’s re­fusal to par­tic­i­pate in the Fifth Con­gres­sional Dis­trict Can­di­dates Fo­rum (spon­sored by Se­nior States­men of Vir­ginia) is sadly rem­i­nis­cent of Tom Gar­rett’s live town hall eva­sions.

I, for one, am so weary of rep­re­sen­ta­tives-of-the-peo­ple (or wanna-be rep­re­sen­ta­tives) hid­ing, dodg­ing and ob­fus­cat­ing.

We need lead­ers in Congress who are will­ing to face the chal­lenges of the of­fice. This is why I’m vot­ing for Les­lie Cock­burn in Novem­ber. Un­like Rig­gle­man, Les­lie Cock­burn clearly rel­ishes the de­mands of pub­lic ser­vice and will rep­re­sent each of us in Wash­ing­ton with en­thu­si­asm, not ex­cuses.
