Legislators who care

To the Editor:

Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan took time out of his busy schedule to visit Barron County and to support Congressman Duffy and State Rep. Rivard.

All three of these men have served the citizens of northern Wisconsin well.

When I attended the county fair, Congressman Duffy and Rep. Rivard are walking among the crowd, answering questions, and defining their political goals for their next term in office.

Those goals include continuing to improve the business environment and to lower the unemployment rate below its current 6.7 percent. 

Fiscal responsibility for both the state and federal government, while assuring each child has access to a quality education, are just a couple of the promises made to their constituents.

My questions, my concerns and my opinions have always been accepted graciously. If I call their offices, either they answer the phone or they return my call promptly.

Never have I heard either Congressman Duffy or Rep. Rivard say a disparaging word about another citizen, their talents, or their personal goals.

These two legislators always convey a respect for the ability of every able-bodied citizen to become a contributing member of society.
