Re: “Letters for the Week of January 25, 2016

I wonder why there are so many 70 year and older representatives in office and keep getting reelected. How could they possibly have the energy to do their jobs. I'm now in my 60's with no health problems and I know personally how stamina and passion for work can fall off.

Re: “Letters for the Week of January 25, 2016

Regarding the "My Voice Matters" article, these women are directimg their frustrations at the wrong person. They should be addressing their letters to our own US Senator, Dianne Feinstein. I use the term "senator" loosely, because for this past critical year, Feinstein has been missing in action.

I actually wrote her to inquire if she was still alive, because she was nowhere to be found on the camapaign trail to stump for our first female candidate running for the highest office of the land. She is the senior senator representing the most populated state in the nation, and she decides to take a powder for the entire 2017 election.

California is supposed to be leading the nation for progressive causes, and we have an 83 year old senator who has absolutely ZERO interest in representing our interests. She is just riding out the gravytrain until her retirement in 2018, but these next two years are critical to the survival of our nation. Can we really afford a do-nothing Trump lackey who intends to rubber-stamp every pick he submits for both his cabinet and the US Supreme Court? That is EXACTLY what she intends to do. Go along to get along seems to be her guiding philosophy.

Feinstein has been milking the assassination of Harvey Milk for way too long. That unfortunate event was a gift to her and she's made a lucrative career out of it. It's time for her to step aside and let Gavin Newsom assume her duties as our voice in Washington. She obviously is no longer up for the challenge. It's the right thing to do for both California and our nation. Dianne, please step aside and let someone who is physically up for the challenge speak for California.

Sincerely,
