Sorry, but your Tip of the Hat to Sen. Jeff Merkley of June 29 is misplaced. While it is true that he puts forth effort to come to Eastern Oregon, it is clear from his record as a senator that his visit is for naught and his partisan ways do continue. The visits are just that, a “visit”; he is a tourist on a social trip, not a concerned legislator that comes to listen, understand and pursue legislation that supports us.

Most recent evidence of him being out of touch on the needs of all of Oregon is his supporting Tweet of May 28 of Oregon HB 2020. So yes, please come, senator, but do us all a favor and listen and act!
