The definition of representative is “acting for or representing a constituency or the whole people.” Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, takes thousands of dollars from powerful lobbies, votes for tax cuts which less than one in three people support, and refuses to host town halls.
I just received a third letter from Herrera Beutler about sea lions eating salmon. I want answers about immigration, DACA, health care, tax cuts, gun violence, climate change, abortion, the opioid epidemic, and the border wall. Herrera Beutler hardly qualifies as representative. Carolyn Long has had 15 town halls in four months. Go Long!
