Letter: Don’t vote with Trump


Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler has represented the 3rd Congressional District since 2011. Since then, she has missed 837 roll call votes, or about 13.5 percent. When she did vote, she voted 91.6 percent in 2017 to 2018 and 69.7 percent from 2019 to 2020 in line with Trump’s position. These votes include voting against raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour, condemning Trump’s comments against four congresswomen as racist, establishing humanitarian standards for people held in custody at the Mexican border, combating brutality and racial discrimination by police and expanding the Affordable Care Act. It’s time for Jaime to go! My vote will go to Carolyn Long!
