MIA - Our Delaware Congressional delegation

September 9, 2013

Our elected officials, Sen. Carper, Sen. Coons and Rep. Carney are back home in Delaware for their summer break. This is the time many other states' representatives are hosting town hall meetings to connect with their constituents and hear what their concerns are so they can represent them in D.C.

Where are they? They have been asked to host town hall meetings to hear the concerns of Delawareans. Response has been, well nothing. We the people of Delaware have a lot of concerns and would like to talk with them - Benghazi, immigration, Obamacare, Syria - to name a few.

How can they honestly represent us if they have no idea how we feel about these issues from both sides? They need to man up and meet with the citizens of Delaware, or are they too scared to back up their voting record?
