This Is Partly Why Laredo Sucks
I thought I was the only person Charlie San Miguel took to ignoring, but judging from several comments recently, it seems to be a trend. Not all local politicos act this way; some have taken the time to respond to my questions via texts or phone calls. Even if they don't answer my questions, or I don't like their answers, I appreciate the time they took to speak to me personally.
I'm looking to contact my councilman via snail mail. He didn't respond to my last text, so plan B is to write to him. I want to see if he utilizes his home office allowance. Three years ago city council upped the amount that they could recover for office supplies and what not.
The Op/Ed submission (pictured above) is exactly the kind of thing that turns people off to politics. When people wonder why voters don't vote, it's because of things like this.
