Local GOP should focus on identifying voters’ concerns

In your Jan. 19 [article] “Front Row Seats,” I read about [former GOP chairman] George Keller. I was astounded by his top two priorities: To require photo identification for voting and to work on redistricting. He stated he was embarrassed about “the division of this state.”

I agree he should be embarrassed, but the embarrassment should be about being so completely out of touch with the issues facing the voters who elected him. What about creating jobs? Business growth? Helping stop the devaluation of real estate properties? Securing more funding for education? Controlling government spending? Wake up! Ask us what matters, then help advocate for those things.
