Pols Are Blood Sucking Creatures’

The writer is the founder and president of Mother Against Guns.

Dear Editor,

The “revelations” of wrong-doing by some of our “elected” or perhaps I should say “selected” officials are making headlines everyday, and I must ask - are you surprised? Hell no, I’m not!

Outraged, you bet I am! For so many years, I have stood mostly solo, and asked that you hold them accountable, but so many of you chose to put on blinders. They throw you a few dollars, take you on a few trips, and all is well. Well, the time has finally come for you to take off the blinders. They stand and talk so eloquently

Letters about what they are doing for the community, and you sit there smiling and clapping so hard that you just can’t contain yourself. My friends, you’ve been had!

So many of the communities that these thieves represent are engulfed in drugs, gang and gun violence. These thieves are robbing you of the quality of life that you and your loved ones deserve. They are responsible for the deterioration of our communities, the lack of educational funding, out-of-school and after-school programs, unemployment and so much more that we - their constituents endure everyday. These ungrateful, greedy thugs take your hard earned money and use it to pad their pockets and the pockets of their cohorts. My friends, these cohorts come in many forms: family members, friends, developers, civic, non-profit and community organizations, and sadly - many of these so-called organizations don’t even exist! Disgusting, you bet it is, and guess who the losers are!

My friends, several years ago I decided to run for office because there were so many issues in our communities that weren’t being “ addressed. The “selected” officials from my community did everything in their “power” to make sure that I didn’t make the ballot. It was truly an experience that I had not anticipated. If you are not one of them, your faith will be tested many times. Imagine, tires slashed, car rearended, threatening and obscene phone calls all hours of the night, and finally to be told: you must do what we tell you, not what you think is best. That didn’t deter me, and I told them (the powers to be) that I would not be their puppet. Of course, that ticked them off. Need I say more.

Most think “politicians” are ruthless and without ethics. Most are correct. Politicians are bloodsucking creatures that will drain you dry! An “elected official” is one that will work with, and for their constituents, and will do all they can to better the communities they represent.

My friends, take a real good look at these crooks and creatures that are representing you. You know and they know who they are. Don’t you deserve better. If you’re pleased with what you have, than you deserve what you get. You have a choice. When will enough be enough?
