Congratulations to newly elected Rep. Ben McAdams on his victory as Utah’s 4th District representative. That said, I worry that some of his future decisions will not be that well thought out.

How much consideration did he give to saying he would not vote for Nancy Pelosi as the speaker of the House? I am pretty sure she will be and should be the speaker.

I was surprised also that he went back to D.C. to be part of the new group of representatives when in fact his victory was still in doubt.

So, please, Rep. McAdams, do some “due diligence” in your future decision making — and yes, I am a Democrat.

Stan Jacobson, Ogden
