Who speaks for me? | Letter to the editor

The Kirkland resident recently attended a town hall meeting.

I recently attended the town meeting at Cascadia College featuring three state lawmakers.

Upon arriving, I found questions from the audience would be submitted in writing. This I presumed would be a chance to cherry pick queries that were comfortable to address.

My skepticism stems from living in a one-party town, in a one-party county in a one-party state.

Upon including email addresses, we were assured any question not answered would be addressed via email. I’m still waiting.

My question remains. With the teacher’s union bankrolling the Supreme Court, the labor unions backing the crime syndicate Sound Transit, the attorney general ignoring illegal car tab calculations and illegal toll lanes and carpetbagger John Kerry flying in to push for a carbon tax , my question is simple: who speaks for me?

William Baldwin,
