Letter to the editor

Letter: Senators should show their faces


I want to have an engaging and meaningful relationship with my senators. Is that too much to ask? This April, our members of Congress had two full weeks to come home and listen to their constituents by holding in-person town halls. Neither of them bothered. It's important to note that Bennet is far above the exceptionally low bar that Gardner has set. Since the inauguration, Bennet has held five in-person town halls, while Gardner has held zero (if you count tele-town halls, he's still behind, at three).  But don't get too excited, those five town halls were Bennet's first round of town halls in over two years. Their next state work period is May 29th - June 2nd. I don't care what party you are - start calling!  We, as Coloradans, deserve face-to-face open-to-the-public time with our Senators.  Cory Gardner: (303) 391-5777; Michael Bennet: (303) 455-7600.
