Letter: Swapping representatives

To the Editor:

I want to swap representatives.

My congressional representative, Randy Hultgren, voted “no” to end the wasteful government shutdown. According to some reports, roughly $24 billion of taxpayer money was lost during the shutdown, and he wanted to keep it going.

Peter Roskam, also a Republican, voted “yes” to end the shutdown and then called on the president and Democratic members of Congress to work with his party to develop a sensible budget and improve the president’s health care law.

I am tired of my representative paying allegiance to his party’s right-wing extremists, instead of his constituents.

Mr. Roskam, will you be my representative?

Jim Lynch
