Congress needs to listen to what voters are saying

Every time I put gas in my automobile I think of my congressmen.

So, the first of this month I called the offices of Sen. George V. Voinovich, Sen. Sherrod Brown and Representative Charles A. Wilson asking each one their position on drilling offshore and in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska. Voinovich supports both.

In the letters I received from Wilson and Brown, they oppose both.

Polls show 65 percent to 74 percent of those surveyed favor offshore drilling or drilling in ANWR. Why doesn’t Wilson and Brown represent the people who put them into office? Who do Wilson and Brown represent?

They are not representing their constituents.

Please call them and ask them to represent you and vote for offshore drilling and drilling in ANWR.

4 Rep. Charles A. Wilson (202) 225-5907

4 Sen. Sherrod Brown (202) 224-2315

I think we need to be using all of our natural resources. In my opinion, our country is being destroyed economically by the lack of action of our Congress.
