It's no wonder Sen. Shaheen refuses to hold open Hown Hall meetings

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

I have a question for you: What's worse than career politicians, like Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who supported the $787 billion "stimulus" plan that did little for New Hampshire? In my opinion, the fact that her business interests directly benefited from it to the tune of $78,000.

That is $78,000 of our hard-earned money she used to line her own pockets. It's no wonder she wants to avoid her constituents and refuses to have open and public Town Hall meetings. There certainly are a lot of reasons why Sen. Shaheen might want to avoid us. From this scandal regarding her vote for the failed stimulus to her continued support for a disastrous Obamacare, I understand why she is hiding. However, it is time our state's senior senator stops hiding and starts answering for years of failed leadership.
