Working For Their Constituents

Editor, News-Register:

I was wondering how many people benefited from the American Rescue Act which was signed into law on March 11, 2021. This package included the Child Tax Credit, emergency SNAP benefits, rental assistance and paycheck protection. The sad thing is that all three of the representatives from West Virginia voted against it.

It is also interesting to note that they did not vote to protect our elections and our right to vote.

When I vote for someone to represent me, I want them to think about issues that affect me, my family and my neighbors. I do not need someone who follows a given book of legislative issues like ALEC gives to the Republican members of state and federal legislators.

The new District 2 has the least amount of land, but about the same number of people. The district has the poorest county and the wealthiest county.

We need to send Barry Wendell to Washington, D.C.
