Letter to the Editor: I Will Vote for Change in 3rd Congressional District


I recently saw an advertisement for Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler where she claimed she was working to reduce gas prices for Washington families. In a telephone town hall, she also said that reckless government spending has contributed to our current inflation crisis, the worst in recent history. She made it sound as though she was taking action.

Unfortunately, what she did not mention was the fact that she voted for Biden’s radical, far-left budget, which has directly contributed to runaway inflation and increased Americans’ pain at the pump.

Herrera Beutler claims to be a bold, conservative voice, but her record shows that she is simply another D.C. politician who doesn’t understand the needs of her constituents, and doesn’t care that it costs us $100 to fill up.

Unlike Jaime Herrera Beutler, Joe Kent has been vocal about the need for American energy independence and criticized Biden’s disastrous energy policies — the same policies that Herrera Beutler apparently supports. Joe Kent understands what Washingtonians need. Jaime does not. I will be voting for change this fall.
