Well, at least we know where he stands....

Hopefully this Indiana state rep will soon be standing elsewhere than in the statehouse.  Indiana State Rep. Craig Fry basically told one of his constituents to piss off and stop trying to act like he's supposed to be listening to his constituents.  Apparently Mr. Fry has been 'serving' a bit too long and has forgotten that he's actually supposed to be, you know, working for his constituency (which would presumably include listening to their opinions).  In response to an email from a Mr. Voll, who was asking that his representative support right to work legislation presently in contention in the Indiana statehouse, Mr. Fry wrote:
Sorry, but you are wrong and please stop with the “free market” bull.  Please don’t write to me again….I am a 40 year member of the Carpenters Union.
 It should be noted that Mr. Fry is developing a history of abrogating his responsibility to his constituents, being one of 36 Democrat representatives who took it on the lam to Illinois last year to derail the democratic process.  He repeated his behavior again this year too saying that a "walkout is the only way to block the bill." (referencing the right-to-work bill).

The folks of District 5 really need to get their act together and get this guy out of office.  He's up for re-election this year, if you're down by Mishawauka......

Don't forget to mention my un-Representative, Terry Goodin. He also doesn't want to hear from constituents but at least he(or his staff) is nicer about telling you to pee up a rope.

He sends a form letter saying, in effect, that he is aware of the differing views but will vote the way he wants.

I don't know about you Don, but I'm getting pretty tired of considering calling my federal rep and senator both an exercise in futility...

My state rep and senator are both very responsive and we seem to be on the same page which makes me feel better on a more local level.

Yep, they need to 'walk' his ass right out the door... sigh

Yep, but he's won by large margins in the last three elections. Can't imagine why anyone would vote for him except out of habit. Lazy voters.
