Letter to the Editor: Maybe It’s Time for a Change

Maybe it’s time for a change.

Maybe it’s time to vote for a change. Our area is entirely represented by Republicans. Our State Representative is Republican, our State Senator is Republican, our U.S. Congressman is Republican, and our Governor is Republican.

It’s been this way for years now, and things have never been worse. Unemployment is high, poverty is rampant, property and gasoline taxes keep going up. Blight is everywhere, with empty storefronts and abandoned buildings. Thanks to unrelenting budget cuts, our K-12 and higher education institutions are in serious trouble.

The Republicans have been blaming everyone but themselves, but they have been the ones in charge. Maybe it’s time to turn them out, or send them a strong message that they have to start standing up for us here in rural Pennsylvania, rather than for big business from elsewhere.
