Letter: Ask questions of representative


Thanks to The Columbian for doing its part in connecting residents of the 3rd Congressional District to their representative, Jaime Herrera Beutler, in “Herrera Beutler plans telephone town hall’ by Lauren Ellenbecker (The Columbian, May 24).

Perfect time to ask questions of Rep. Herrera Beutler about Congress’ work to battle COVID, lack of health care, tax fairness, homelessness, gun regulation and more. For example, is she working to extend the Child Tax Credit that lifted nearly 4 million children out of poverty? Are there finally enough gun deaths to do what 84 percent of voters wish for: better gun regulation? And what action does she support to battle climate change?

The representative’s answers can help voters make their choices for November and give them a chance to follow up on the answers they are given. Don’t miss this chance to ask questions of an elected representative, an important part of our democracy.
