Letter: Hopeful independent trend continues



In a show of Kabuki theater-of-the-mind, our representative in Congress, Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Camas, played a great part by defying conservative lobbyist Grover Norquist and voted to extend tax relief for middle-class Americans, all while making national headlines.

Let’s just hope this trend of hers to bilk Norquist continues and we get a new, safe bridge built to Portland …before a national catastrophe strikes and we again make the headlines.
