Letter to the editor: Inform the public with how our reps voted

Tuesday, March 11, 2014 - 1:26 pm

How can you criticize the state Senate for having a caucus where the public does not have a chance to know the debate between senators?

You emphasize that the public should be informed, and yet the simplest way of informing the public about our elected representatives would be a box score on the editorial page showing how this area’s representatives voted on each issue. They could then explain their vote when challenged.

To me, it sounds like a no-brainer if you are serious about informing your readers. Otherwise, do not editorialize about closed doors at meetings.
