Legislature needs more like Sheldon

OlympiaFebruary 3, 2013 

Tim Sheldon is one of the only politicians who is not owned by political lobbies or parties. He votes the will of his constituents.

Evidently Lee Rimmer is one of those people who vote “my party right or wrong.”

I wish we had more people in the Legislature who listened to the people they represent. Instead we get politicians who either vote what their political party tells them or for the lobby group that has paid the most to help them win elections.

We need many more independent representatives exactly like Tim Sheldon. He will always have my vote no matter what political party he is affiliated with.
