It was encouraging to read Mr. [Clay] Hurand’s letter to the editor [“Two Reasons to Unseat Rep. Patrick McHenry”] in the July 18 issue of the Mountain Xpress . He proposed that we voters choose to unseat Rep. Patrick McHenry and stated two good reasons to do so.
I have written to Mr. McHenry twice in the past six months on issues of a military parade and specifics of the federal tax code. I received a reply each time by letter, each of which was nearly a copy of the other. Both were framed in patriotic jargon about the “best interests of the American people” without any rational thought as to what that may be. His continuing record of blindly supporting Congressional Republican dogma is a travesty. As Mr. Hurand stated, “It is time to unseat Mr. McHenry.”
