Vote them all out

As Richard Greene correctly postulated (column, June 1), House Speaker Jim Wright’s resignation was a terrible waste of a great man’s talent.

Wright’s desire was to end that “season of bad will” in Congress.

History has proven him to be unbelievably correct in his assessment of the political spectrum. He may prove to be the last to actually represent all his constituents.

My representative sends out emails with innocuous current-event questions-and-answers with no meaning or direction.

In my perspective he doesn’t pay attention to what his constituents want or need. Like most all his Washington colleagues, he has his own agenda.

Wright’s gesture should not be in vain. It seems that we need resignations today that express the same sentiment.

However, this Washington crowd does not have the same character as Jim Wright. Voters should now make that decision for them.

Jim Wright labeled this illness “mindless cannibalism.”

Let’s cure this disease once and for all.

This November, we should validate his noble gesture made 25 years ago and vote all of them out.
