OPINION: NJ-03’s Tom MacArthur is a dictator, not a public servant.

A letter to the editor by Kerry Douglas of Mt. Holly, NJ

This week I attended one of the many events introducing Andy Kim to voters. Mr. Kim is running for Congress in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional district, looking to unseat current GOP Congressman Tom MacArthur.

The fundamental difference between Andy Kim and Tom MacArthur is not one of party, but of vision. Kim believes that a Congressional Representative is a public servant, working for the people of his district. MacArthur believes a Representative is a ruler, dictating to his constituents what he thinks is best.

Some of MacArthur’s fiats so far:

Andy Kim has repeatedly criss-crossed CD3, talking with and listening to the people in this district. MacArthur has not met with constituents in a year – unless you could afford $5,000+ to get into his elite fundraisers.

Andy Kim will be guided by his constituents’ needs, not by lobbyists, special interests, or personal political ambition. He has pledged to hold at least one town hall meeting a month when he is elected. A Congressperson who actually listens to his people…what a refreshing change.
