Letter writer: Ross has history of finding consensus

Graphic by Lori Deaton

Richard Burr is a conservative Republican senator. Even before there is an election, Republicans in Congress are meeting and discussing how they will call for hearings, special investigations, public grilling and impeachment of Hillary Clinton if she is elected.

A congressman’s time is not unlimited. Is this how you want them to spend their time when we have many difficult problems that need attention. What should be our priorities?

Deborah Ross served in the N.C. General Assembly from [2003] to 2013. She has a history of finding consensus between Democrats and Republicans on real issues.

If you want another four years of gridlock and government shutdowns from the U.S. Congress, vote for Richard Burr. If you want to see the beginning of a discussion to help solve America’s problems, vote for Deborah Ross.
