Former Congresswoman Nan Hayworth is running for office again, and I would like to remind all the voters in Orange County of Ms. Hayworth’s performance during her term.
Remember, when Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee hit us in 2011? Did then Congresswoman Hayworth advocate and fight for us in Congress? No she didn’t. Ms. Hayworth, her Republican colleagues and leaders (Boehner and Cantor) threatened to withhold disaster funds if additional spending was not cut from the federal budget. In other words, cut somewhere else before we give out the money while many residents lost their homes, businesses, infrastructure and roads were damaged, etc. Ms. Hayworth had the nerve to compare this situation to a family having to skip vacation because they were overwhelmed by bills.
Now Ms. Hayworth is supporting fracking in NY State. Do we want to send her back to Congress? I don’t think so.
