The Greatest Constituent Letter Ever

You've just got to read this. A liberal woman just became the minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Cheyenne wrote a letter to her new state rep. Well, let's just say that he wasn't having any of it.

Dear Representative,

I hope you are taking care of yourself during this busy session. I know it is a challenging, compressed time.

I am writing to express my grave concern about House Bill 105. Ample evidence has shown that schools and guns do not mix, and in particular, guns in the hands of amateurs/non-professionals is extremely dangerous, especially in any highly-charged situation. to expose our children to greater risk in their schools by encouraging more guns on campuses is something that we cannot allow.

My husband and I moved to Wyoming not too long ago. We believed it was a good place to raise children. With the recent and reactive expansion of gun laws and the profoundly serious dangers of fracking, we find we are seriously reconsidering our decision, which is wrenching to all of us. However, the safety of our family must come first. We are waiting to see what the legislature does this session. I know of other new-to-Wyoming families in similar contemplation. Your choices matter. It would be sad to see an exodus of educated, childrearing age adults from Wyoming as a result of poor lawmaking.

sincerely,

Rev. Audette Fulbright

Hunt’s response:


Rev. Fulbright,

I’ll be blunt. If you don’t like the political atmosphere of Wyoming, then by all means, leave. We, who have been here a very long time (I am proudly 4th generation) are quite proud of our independent heritage. I don’t expect a “mass exodus” from our state just because we’re standing up for our rights. As to your comments on fracking, I would point out that you’re basing your statement on “dangers” that have not been scientifically founded or proved as of yet.

It offends me to no end when liberal out-of-staters such as yourself move into Wyoming, trying to get away from where they came from, and then pompously demand that Wyoming conform to their way of thinking. We are, and will continue to be, a state which stands a head above the rest in terms of economic security. Our ability to do that is, in large part, to our “live and let live” mentality when it comes to allowing economic development, and limiting government oversight. So, to conclude, if you’re so worried about what our legislature is working on, then go back home.

Sincerely,

Hans Hunt

Representative Hans Hunt

Nice... And the mystic monk coffee is made in Wyoming if I am not mistaken (your advertisement to the right)

Bang on! (so to speak)

The alligator-shoe boys posing as our Republican leadership could learn much from The Honorable (truly honorable) Mr. Hunt.

WOW! With names like Audette Fulbright and Hans Hunt you have to wonder if this is real or a hoax! Again: WOW!

Hans, you're sooo insensitive to this ladies concerns. Good for you!

Wouldn't it be nice if all reps replied like this? As it is I'll write my legislator with a detailed letter explaining why X harms and they will send back a letter that doesn't actually respond to any of my points. Did he even READ it?

Latest example was something along the lines...

Letter: "Abortion has been linked to breast cancer. Don't support PP."

Response: "Given the rise of BC in the population we feel it's vital to support PP in their mission."

Alipius, they are real, and Hans is only 24 years old. Gotta love it.

Legislators in SC and NH could learn from him. You (a liberal) ruin, by the policies you've supported, a place where you've lived and so you flee to another state and attempt to ruin that one too? Ix-nay!

God bless him!

HALLELUJAH! I want to move to Wyoming.

As a native Wyomingite (who lives in Arizona, but would give almost anything to move home), I am very proud of my little state. And the truth is, except for a few pockets here and there, (Mr?) Hunt's is the attitude of most of the people there.

Elizabeth said...

That totally made my morning when I read it. It made me so happy that just for the heck of it, I wrote Mr. Hunt a brief email expressing my appreciation and support for such a commonsense and direct reply to the "ministress" wannabe Wyomingite who wants Wyoming, her new home, to more resemble the home she ran away from. Sheesh. Bravo Hans Hunt.

Clinton said...

Elizabeth, like you I too wrote Rep. Hunt to thank him, and I don't
even live in Wyoming!

I hope the Honorable Mr. Hunt has a long and influential career in
politics. May he never lose his taste for speaking blunt truth to
pompous jackassery.

I particularly like the part before she threatens a mass exodus of "educated" people from Wyoming where she explains that "guns . . . is extremely dangerous"
Nice Touch.
