Letter to the Editor

Jaime Hererra Butler has represented the 3rd District since 2011. Since then, she has missed 837 roll call votes or about 13.5 percent of the time. The accepted average is about 2.2 percent. When she did vote, she voted 91.6 percent in 2017-18 and 70.3 percent in 2019-20 in line with President Trump’s position. 

These votes include voting against raising the minimum wage to $15.00 per hour, condemning Trump’s comments against four congresswomen as racist, establishing humanitarian standards for people held in custody at the Mexican border, combating brutality and racial discrimination by police and expanding the Affordable Care Act.It’s time for Jaime to go. My vote will go to Carolyn Long!
