Meet With Constituents or Go Home

Recently, our national Congress was on recess, even though there were a plethora of national issues that needed to be addressed. They needed time to reconnect with their constituents. However, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, failed to have a town-hall meeting so he could report to the voters on the issues that we face, and 2nd District Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, had a meeting elsewhere in his district but not in Salt Lake County.

Our congressmen and senators should be required to have a town-hall meeting with voters during times that they’re not in session. If they can’t meet this minimum requirement of constituent involvement, then it should trigger a recall election.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
