Letter: Rep. Greg Pence’s stance on Jan. 6 does not serve his constituents

From: Bill Kozar


There’s nothing at all baffling about Greg Pence and his stance in the Republican Party as it exists today. He’s a member of a new political party, the bitter Republicans. Still bitter over the election loss suffered by Trump.

It’s safety in numbers, and stick with the group consensus. Don’t dare step out of line, or speak out against the new party, or the likes of Sens. Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Marco Rubio, and Rand Paul. Don’t vote in opposition to the party, just take credit later.

Pence is more concerned over what the bitter Republicans may think of him than representing the people who voted him into office. So much so, that a vote in favor of holding former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in contempt of Congress, and exposing more truth about the Jan. 6 insurrection, is beyond comprehension to him.

Hiding facts about the danger Vice President Mike Pence was in, and that it was Trump that put him there, means nothing. So where does that leave us, the constituents he’s supposed to represent? We’re left out. Ignored. Even if a bill would make life better for the majority of people in the US, it gets a thumbs down.

All that’s left to say is he doesn’t represent me, and come Election Day, he will not get my vote.
