A Civics Experiment

Regular readers here know that I’m frustrated by the profligate waste and fiscal irresponsibility our Washington leadership has demonstrated. After many posts and comments (and a great deal of anguish), I decided to bring my concerns directly to the people running for office in my area.

Call it a civics experiment.

To that end, I spent the vast majority of last weekend putting together a letter, and this past Monday morning I sent it to all the congressional candidates (20 or so people) in my immediate 2-county area.

You can view the letter here.

I plan to begin posting responses — or the lack thereof — at my blog on Monday. I haven’t a clue whether it will make the slightest difference to anyone but me, but I’m tired of sitting on my hands.
