In the Nov. 18 edition of “Letters,” I read an interesting letter condemning Representative Tom McClintock as being bad for the county. The genesis for this comment was the fact that he voted against ending the so called “government shutdown.”
The negative assertion that Representative McClintock’s single vote would “starve” children and deny them medical care was presented strictly as an opinion since there were no facts presented to verify the claim.
There was also a claim that our duly elected Republican representative was not doing his job because he was not following the dictums of the Democratic party. I, for one, am very, very happy that he is not because he was elected for his commitment to the principles of the Republican party.
Keep up the good work, Tom. You are good for this county.
