Letter: Addressing our nation
(Timothy D. Easley | AP file photo) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., speaks to reporters during a press conference in Louisville, Ky., Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2020. McConnell secured a seventh term in Kentucky, fending off Democrat Amy McGrath.
Dear Sen. McConnell: American citizens elect senators and congressional representatives so that our thoughts and concerns may be brought to the forefront. Please allow our elected senators to hear all congressional bills, so that we, the people, may have our voices heard. American citizens, please do not consider Congress “do-nothings” when it is Mr. McConnell who refuses their bills to be heard on the Senate floor.
Mr. Trump: If you are reelected, please become the president to all Americans, like you promised in 2016. Please stop disparaging Democrats, as we are half of your constituency.
American citizens: Please open your minds to those who look to a different path forward than what we hold ourselves. We must try to find some common ground. Please give credence to our learned scientists and heed their advice in matters of our changing planet and the virus that threatens us.
