Letter: Most important duty

To the Editor:

Regarding the letter to the editor in the Aug. 5 edition of the Kane County Chronicle: Amazing! I can’t imagine judging a political candidate by how they would vote on an amendment concerning animals when their most important duty is to work for the benefit of their constituents, i.e., protecting them from unfair taxes, caring for their general welfare and ensuring that our government is functioning according to the constitution.

Randy Hultgren is doing just that while our present administration is not.

And why are horses considered such sacred animals that they cannot be raised for human consumption? They are in many other parts of the world. After all, we currently consume most every other kind of bird, beast and fish in the world. Why, we even eat chickens and their unborn young!

Perhaps it’s time the writer gets their ideas of what’s important in proper order.
