Letter to the editor: End of election relief

Posted

We can all breathe a sigh of relief that the onslaught of political ads are over, at least for the moment. My hope now is that our elected officials do not go right back to business as usual. The record numbers that turned out for a mid term should send a signal. The voters of our country are waking up and taking positions. One of the strongest of those is that we are tired of gridlock in our government and we demand that our representatives drop the vitriolic name calling and mud slinging, and work within party and across aisles to come to reasonable compromises that our nation can live with. The time for non-yielding partisanship is over. If those of you we elected cannot govern in an effective manner, you will see even more of us at the polls in the next election and you will be replaced by those who can get the job done. Within my small sphere of influence I for one will do all that I can to make sure that the spotlight of public responsibility is trained on you and am encouraging all voters to do the same.
Richard Kurtz,
Arvada
