Congressman shouldn’t just meet with select groups

To the Editor:

While Congressman Collins seems to enjoy meeting with select groups of people (primarily business groups), I have yet to see an opportunity for the general public to address their concerns to him in a public setting.

That he spoke to the Albion Rotary Club on Thursday (click here to see article) does not really count as meeting voters in Orleans County, it only means that he spoke to the Rotary Club members who got an invitation.

Congressman Collins should offer opportunities for all voters to speak to him, not just invited groups.
