Letter: O’Brien doesn’t get it
Rep. Bill O’Brien still doesn’t get it! In the election of 2012 he was not given a mandate. Mont Vernon, where he lives, did give him a majority vote, but the other town in his district did not. He was elected to represent all of his constituents, not just some. Also, many of his cohorts, who only voted his way, were not re-elected.
A good representative does not vote straight one party or the other. Instead, he listens, he questions and he studies all sides before voting. A one-part system is not a democracy.
