OPINION: Andy Kim works across the aisle and gets things done

A letter to the editor by Rosemary L’Erario from Eastampton NJ

On an historic day in our country, a day in which a lawless president was finally held accountable through the courageous House Democrats and two Articles of Impeachment, Kate Gibbs resorts to the most juvenile statements in criticism of Congressman Andy Kim for his vote to impeach.

No one would object if she called out our Congressman for a difference of opinion on policy, and actually had a plan or platform to stand on.  But sadly, “substance” will not be her campaign strategy.  She has decided to follow the dumbed-down, GOP tactics to appeal to the least common denominator; e.g., yelling “socialism,” without knowing the meaning of the word, ignoring the obvious interference of a foreign government in our elections, witness intimidation, and obstruction of justice …. all to put party over country.

Congressman Kim has done more in his first year than his republican predecessor did in his entire term in Congress.  He has worked across the aisle to sponsor legislation that benefits the people of our District, and the country.  He’s held 15 town halls and has been one of the most accessible Representatives our District has seen.  And most important, he views his role as public servant, collaborating with (not lecturing to) and listening to his constituents, taking our voices to Washington.

If Ms. Gibbs’ “attacks” are what we can look forward to leading up to the election, it’s going to be a long campaign season.  Her pathetic name calling and misplaced loyalties will not help her win a congressional seat, especially not after we’ve experienced what it means to have a real Representative in Congressman Kim.
