Waiting on a return call

To the Editor,

As this is an election year, we will be asked by the candidates to vote for them.

I believe one of the first responsibilities of an elected official is to respond to the calls or letters of their constituents. I have phones Senator Ryan Ferns’ offices a minimum of nine times (Feb. 28, March 2, March 14, March 19, March 23 twice, March 24, March 27 and March 30).

With each phone call, I requested that Senator Ferns return my phone calls as I wished to speak to him personally. As of this writing, I have yet to receive a phone call from Senator Ferns.

In sharing this situation with several local citizens of the First Senatorial District, I have learned there are many others who have experienced the same results. I would suspect that there are more of Senator Ferns’ constituents who also have not received a return phone call.

Mr. Ferns will be asking the citizens of the First Senatorial District to vote for him during this year’s election. Please consider this: If you ever request that he return your call…Good luck!
