Below is a copy of an open letter to a Maine Senator that I just sent out to the news paper in Augusta, our Maine capital.
I feel it is not enough to send letters to our politicians and to call them when a grievance arises; but by publishing open letters to your Senators and Congress persons in state news papers you are more likely to get their attention. It is also important when they cast a vote against the Trump overreaches to acknowledge your support.
I urge you to Resistance publish.
An open letter to Senator Susan Collins.
I really appreciate your vote against Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education. As a retired school teacher and principal I readily concur that she was and is unqualified for the position.
Your willingness to cross party lines and vote your principles is the reason I willingly cross my party line and vote for you, though I am a registered Democrat.
I was disappointed in your vote for Jeff Sessions for Attorney General, as I feel his racist background was disqualifying.
I would ask that you take a close look at the nominee for Supreme Court Justice and that he is well vetted before deciding to cast your vote.
This is a new era we face; and rest assured politicians will be held accountable for all their votes when the results of this new regime is tallied.
Feel free to use any part in composing a letter for publication to your state's Senators.
We also resist that stay at home
