Letter: We do deserve better!

In Dr. Lee Rogers’ Oct. 30 commentary, he says, “Elect me, because we deserve better.” The piece is yet another slam Buck diatribe with just a few statements about what he will do. With all due respect to Dr. Rogers, who seems to be a nice guy and I’m sure a fine podiatrist, how about focusing on the issues ... especially local issues? He says, “I’ll work to hold those responsible for cleaning up the Santa Susana Field Laboratory in Simi Valley. And I’ll fight for jobs and aerospace in the Antelope Valley.” This is a commentary for the local paper in the SCV. What about fighting for jobs in our valley? He was astute enough to include the crown jewel of Buck SCV attack points ... the Cemex mine. However, a freshman congressman introducing legislation to stop the Cemex mine isn’t the same as actually being able to stop it.

Typically, political leaders work their way through leadership positions, like school boards or City Councils. Even leading a Boy Scout troop would be a good leadership position to hold. I’m not seeing any of this leadership from Dr. Rogers, who is relatively new to our area.

The Rogers/McKeon race has gotten completely out of control with other businesses being dragged in and all kinds of conspiracy theories being thrown out.

In the end, people will vote for whoever they feel is the best choice to represent them in Washington. Isn’t America great! I do however agree with Rogers that we do deserve better. I don’t think we are getting that in this campaign.
