Cory Gardner Staff rude and condescending

 

 

Dear Editor

 

 

Today I joined protesters outside Cory Gardner’s Ft. Collins office. Until now, I have limited my civic duty to voting and writing letters to politicians. I stood in a line to speak with a representative for Cory Gardner. Other’s in line complained about the “rudeness” of the representative, however, I would call it a condescending attitude, for I felt we were viewed not as constituents, but as merely uneducated-in- politics voters. I can’t help but wonder – is this attitude of superiority the very evil that is destroying our country? Do we not believe that all men are created equal? Is this why the idea of common good to promote the general welfare is a forgotten tenet of our country? I think the staff of Mr. Gardner forgot they represent us, the people in his district.
