CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT 6
“THE FUTURE CAN BE OURS!”
In former U.S. Senator Dennis DeConcini’s classic memoir, FROM THE CENTER
OF THE AISLE, he tells on page 119 about a question he would ask every
judicial nominee that came before his committee. He asked: “Will you
maintain a temperament of respect to those that appear before you, whether
they are defendants, plaintiffs, witnesses, or lawyers, after you are
sworn into office?”
“TEMPERAMENT OF RESPECT.” That’s the story of our time, isn’t it? Either
the presence of a “temperament of respect” or the lack of it.
The Democrat Conor Lamb’s victory in the special congressional election in
Pennsylvania last week should give voters in our District 6 hope that the
same thing could happen here.
Conservative NEW YORK TIMES columnist David Brooks writes:
“Conor Lamb is wrong on a bunch of stuff, but he is a breath of fresh air
for this country. This year, restoring character and shared moral norms
matters most. Policy is secondary.” (“Worthy Is the Lamb,” by David
Brooks, NEW YORK TIMES, 3/15/18, www.nytimes.com)
Moreover, I received an email two days ago from Hillary Clinton in which
she shares: “This week, I’ve been traveling abroad, talking to people
about how our countries have grown and changed over the last few years. I
was so proud to be able to share with folks here that Conor Lamb won his
race on Tuesday, thanks to the hard work of organizers and volunteers in
the 18th district of Pennsylvania who made their voices heard.” Then she
adds: “…recommit to vote in your next local election. It couldn’t be
more important.” (“our most fundamental right,” by Hillary Clinton,
Friends, it is so important that all Democrats and left-leaning
Independents vote in the upcoming General Election in November. A Democrat
can win in our district so that climate change issues can be supported,
reasonable gun safety measures can be adopted, and public education can be
favored with the respect it deserves.
