Dear Editor and citizen of Arizona:
Did you know that Governor Janet Napolitano wants to set up an office in Washington so that she can lobby Washington on behalf of Arizonans? This was reported in the February 24 on-line edition of the Arizona Republic. The primary reason is that she believes that the Arizona delegation to the United States Congress is not doing their job. She indicates that you just don't see much of Representative Flake, among other members. We think that we know why.
Congressman Jeff Flake is expending time, energy and the political capital that belongs to Arizonans, especially his Sixth Congressional District, on local Washington, D.C. trying to impose controversial, school vouchers on Washington D.C. schools. (If Congress were to give the vote to her and two colleagues in the Senate we could lobby for our own federal school reform dollars). Is this why you sent Mr. Flake to Washington - to impose legislation on D.C., when we in D.C. have not even asked for it?
What you probably don't realize is that residents of Washington, D.C. do not have voting representation in Congress. That aside, and your position on school vouchers aside, did you really expect when you elected Mr. Flake that he would occupy himself with drafting legislation, making deals to get it passed, fending off opposition, accounting for his position in the media, making a name for himself among some party higher ups - all on local D.C. issues? I think not.
Well, we residents of Washington, D.C. encourage you to do something about Mr. Flake's extracurricular activities.
1. Tell your Congressman to 'leave D.C.', that is stop engaging in local D.C. affairs. You can do that at our website - www.leavedc.com.
2. Tell Mr. Flake to withdraw his legislation to create vouchers. It takes up time that belongs to you
3. Tell your Congressman to start a campaign to abolish each and every D.C. subcommittees in the United States Congress - the House and the Senate.
4. Tell Congress to support legislation in Congress right now to free D.C. by working to support legislation that promotes D.C. autonomy on fiscal, legislative and judicial matters and free Congress of the burden of Congressional governance of local D.C.
Congress needs to work for its own constituents not local D.C. Help our movement in D.C. to get your Congressman out of our D.C. affairs and back on track doing what you elected him to do: represent Arizona in Congress.
