Letter: Garcia ignored constituents
The situation with state Rep. Marilinda Garcia of Salem exemplifies the frustration Americans have with our representatives.
Despite a whopping 80 percent of the Salem voters in favor of a casino at Rockingham Park, Garcia inexplicably voted against it.
As we know, a two-casino vote lost in the New Hampshire House by one vote. Their job is to represent us, not ignore the majority and cast votes based on their personal bias, or blindly along party lines, or the wishes of wealthy campaign donors, or the wishes of special interest groups.
Here was yet another chance for jobs, income for the state and progress. New Hampshire remains in the dark ages, resistant to join the rest of the country, heaping most of the costs on the homeowner with an unbelievably archaic tax system.
