Two to three weeks ago I called the office of Jaime Herrera Beutler and said, “I am a constituent from Longview and I am in favor of impeachment,” and the gentleman in the office hung up on me! I did not expect my opinion to sway her, but as a constituent, I wanted my preference noted. I redialed and said “I am a constituent from Longview and I believe you hung up on me”. He hung up again!
I wrote her a polite email describing the incident and requested a reply. I am still waiting for a response.
Is this how Herrera Beutler represents the people of southwest Washington? Only those with whom she agrees? Is it acceptable to treat those with whom she disagrees rudely? She was elected to represent all of us. We are her employers and by extension, we employ the people who work in her office. How would it work if any of us hung up on our employers twice and then did not respond to their letter? We would be out of work and Herrera Beutler should be as well.
