Letter: New senator didn't follow his campaign promises

To the Editor:

After following Matt Schmit's first legislative session and reading his summary (June 11) and the R-E article June 4 "Lawmakers can do better," I don't think Matt represented the majority of his constituents in his voting as he promised he would do. Nor did he not just follow party politics as he said over and over he would not do.

I just hope people remember three years from now how Matt betrayed us.

His column ended, "We're making Minnesota work again."

What his voting did will keep all Minnesota working longer to pay for his appetite of spending.

I think Tim Kelly did much better summing up the failures of our three branches of Democrats.
