KATIE ZERR: Citizen input influences state, national leaders

Share

With many more partisan battles in Congress on the horizon, it is important that South Dakotans make their voices heard.

This last debacle in Congress should have all livid over the procrastination that left so little time for real negotiating that would have solved a number of problems.

This is the lowest rated Congress in modern times (recent polls show only 5 percent approve of the job Congress is doing, and 69 percent rate it as poor). Americans need to let their representatives know how they feel about it.

On the state level, laws are being debated that concern the daily lives of South Dakotans. There will be issues before our legislature that deal with funding for education, Medicare and Medicaid. These are all very important to the Mobridge area and our medical community.

We need to know how our representatives vote and let them know how we expect them to represent us.

Following is the contact information for our Congressional delegation and for District 23 representatives.

It is published for your convenience in hopes that you will contact those who are your voice in national and state issues.
