Letter to the editor: 3rd Congressional District doesn’t have time to waste — vote Hennrich


I am a resident of Washington state’s 3rd Congressional District. This is a critical voting year for our district and our state.

Brent Hennrich is the Democrat running to replace Jaime Hererra Beutler this year. I called Brent almost a year ago and asked him questions about his candidacy and what he saw for our district. Brent actually lives in our district, so we have mutual needs for Southwest Washington.

First and foremost is the climate crisis. That’s my No. 1 concern. Almost two years ago, we spent 10 days inside our homes due to wildfire smoke. We have been experiencing droughts and rising temperatures. While this shouldn’t be considered a political issue, every Republican in office either ignores or dismisses it. Including Jaime Hererra Beutler.

Joe Kent is running as a Republican against Herrera Beutler. Kent has vowed to do literally nothing. I don’t mean just about the climate crisis, I mean about anything. However, Herrera Beutler has done nothing for us, either. I mean nothing.

The other day I received a two-page brochure-type advertisement from a Democrat, Marie Gluesenkamp Perez. In this ad was a poll. In this poll the “Democrat” was in the lead, followed by Kent and then Ms. Herrera Beutler. Herrera Beutler is certainly in a position to be replaced in our district and since she’s done very little to improve our district, I’m not surprised. However, Gluesenkamp Perez failed to mention the Democrat in the polling is Brent Hennrich. She claims she’s the only major Democrat in this race. Well, that is news to me. Who, I wonder, deemed Ms. Gluesenkamp Perez, the only major Democrat in this race?

I have tried to call Gluesenkamp Perez, but she hasn’t returned my call. She doesn’t have open direct messages on Twitter and I don’t see that she’s accepting any messages of any kind from anywhere. And since she’s just entered this race, in February, I’m not sure how we reach out to this candidate. Her policies are generic and without specifics as to what she will do to improve our district. I already have a congressperson that hasn’t returned my calls for the past six years.

Now I’m ready for a person who will take my calls. He may not always agree with me, but he listens to what I have to say. He isn’t a professional politician. His speech isn’t always perfect. Hennrich is the candidate we should get behind and push over the primary finish line. Washington’s 3rd Congressional District doesn’t have time to waste.

Michelle Cooper,

    The smoke you refer to came from fires in Democrat Kate Brown's Oregon. The debris on the forest floors in Oregon might have been harvested for wood products rather than fueling fires but the Democrats hate letting someone make a profit. Burn baby, burn.

    MY "Open Letter" to JOE KENT;

    Hey Joe Kent,

    One of YOUR "Goons", made the mistake of interuping OUR "Band Practice", and conveying a threat to a member of OUR band!

    Let me "Assure" YOU of something Joe Kent, THAT is going to be ONE mistake that YOU CAN'T "Walk-Back"!

    BEFORE "This Happened", I wasn't even "Concerned" about you,

    BUT YOU interuped MY MUSIC, and NOW, it's become, P-E-R-S-O-N-A-L

    I just HAPPEN to be "Retired Career Military",

    what does THAT "Mean"?

    I have LOTS of FREE "Time", to devote to "Special Cases"!

    Let me "Make" this, PERFECTLY CLEAR, to YOU, "Dip $#iT";

    If either YOU, or ANY of YOUR "Hinchmen" comes on MY PROPERTY, or the "Property", of ANY OF MY FRIENDS, and conveys ANOTHER "Verbal Threat",

    the next "Chain Of Events", WILL BE, as "Follows";

    [1] An UNPLEASANT OUTCOME, for YOU, Joe Kent, or SAID REPRESENTATIVE, acting on YOUR "Behalf",


    [2] A "Situation" that will have to be "Settled" before A JUDGE!

    I will leave it to YOUR "Imagination", to Interpret what I "Mean", by the term;

    "Unpleasant Outcome"!
