Letter to the Editor

Stolen seat

Tuesday, September 13, 2005

Dear Editor,

Thank you, Mike Hendricks, for finally writing a thoughtful and clear article on why Hergert should step down from his stolen seat ["It's time to recall Hergert" (http://www.mccookgazette.com/story/1116541.html)].

And, thank you McCook Gazette, for printing Hendricks' piece. I've been wondering when the good people of Western Nebraska would become outraged enough to make a stand. I, for one, am tired of politicians who think they can lie, manipulate and bully voters and not face any consequences. Elected officials are supposed to be "for the people" and not "for special interest groups."

We need public servants who have integrity; we don't need more people with questionable ethics who have enough money to buy an election.

Liz Kumru,
