Regarding Jerry Cornfield’s Nov. 15 column, “Unions see Dunshee as Hobbs’ successor”:
Hooray for Sen. Steve Hobbs! I admire an elected official who cannot be bought or used by powerful unions or other influential organizations. Sen. Hobbs is an elected official with integrity and strong fortitude who weighs all sides of an issue and determines what’s best for his constituents, not what is politically expedient.
During this time of economic challenges, our elected officials must study all sides of financial matters and determine the best use of our tax dollars. There is no way any elected official can please all the people all the time.
Personally, I am on “the other side of the aisle” and have disagreed with Sen. Hobbs on several issues, but I respect him. We need elected officials on both sides who will serve us, and not powerful unions or lobbying groups.
Voters, we now know that if Rep. Hans Dunshee chooses to run for the Senate seat, he will have a “hook” in him. Do we want a senator representing us who is influenced by a powerful union?
