Is our Congresswomen Lost in Washington DC?
When we elect individuals to go to Washington DC to speak up for us on the issues that are affecting our lives here in their district, we expect some type of communication or presence in the district of our member of Congress. This has not been the case for Renee Ellmers in the last term many people noticed her absent in the public eye here in Harnett County. In many cases the only way that you were able to see her is if there was a special event or fundraiser for other elected officials. Therefore the everyday people of Harnett County have been unable to speak with their Congresswomen. The question we must ask is she lost in Washington DC?
When Congressman Bob Etheridge was our voice in DC there were not many places or local events that you would not see him at. He was approachable and available to speak with; we are missing out on that accessibility to our member of Congress and desperately need that back in our district. In the last few months I have seen Congressman David Price more times then Congresswomen Renee Ellmers in the last 2 ½ years and she resides in Dunn. David Price lives in Chapel Hill and is spending more time in the district offering constituent services and events. I find it hard to believe that Congresswomen Ellmers would be to busy to come to events when David Price a ranking member in Congress can find the time.
We need someone who is going to be amongst us and not in DC away from the very people who elected her into office. She has decided to contemplate running for US Senate, that’s great I just hope she gets some new staff and better constituent services…
