Regarding Congressman Paul Cook’s soapbox, “I won’t be appearing as a political prop for protests.”

With all due respect, Congressman Cook, you have turned yourself into a prop, not for protests but for the extremist Republican regime currently in office.

Your 100 percent party-line politics are in direct opposition to your job as an elected official who represents all constituents.

We have politely requested a town hall over and over again. Crickets. You forced us to demand a town hall meeting!

Refusal and name calling on your part (local agitators, fringe group). We moved on to rallies and the #WhereIsPaulCook campaign. This is democracy, Congressman Cook.

This is what it looks like.

    That Indivisible Movement is about relentless as John Freter's weekly Trump tirade. It is terrible when the platform you demand to front your liberal ideology is not provided. Just write to the newspapers, protest, and keep demanding. How about trying electing someone who has your 100% liberal goals and objectives to shove down our throats. Seems to work in other districts. Work harder at telling the truth and you could grow your movement and get your candidate in office that will not listen to the people you claim that he works for.
