Elizabeth Skelton: Out with McClintock

May 30, 2014 

Voters: When you go to the polls remember that Congressman Tom McClintock voted for the government shutdown that cost our area hundreds of thousands of dollars in tourist revenue due to the closure of Yosemite, cost thousands in lost income tax, and cost our country billions of dollars, literally.

It was a partisan squabble on both sides that should have been settled through discussions and negotiations.

These incumbents, on both “sides of the aisle,” need to learn to care about the welfare of their constituents instead of merely their political careers.

Speak with your vote; vote out McClintock!
