Reichert continues to be voice of reason | Letter

The never-ending screaming match in politics these days is insufferable. Both the Republicans and Democrats have dug their heels in the sand and refuse to work together. We need to find reasonable people on both sides of the aisle to come up with lasting solutions. There are few out there anymore who fall into the sensible, moderate category. Thankfully, we in Washington’s 8th Congressional District are well-represented.

Any consumer of the news has seen the relentless attacks on Congressman Dave Reichert, but I’m at a loss to explain the true motivation. For years, Reichert has been the adult in the room, taking a sensible approach to the serious issues our region and this country face. Reichert continues to be a voice of reason, and we need to have his back.

We’ve seen petty politics on both sides for quite some time now, but Reichert has stayed above the fray, continuing to reach across the aisle on issues important to our region, and always putting principle before politics. Thank you, Congressman. Keep up the good work.
