Letter: A professional politician

I hope this letter is read by U.S. Rep. Raúl Labrador as to what people expect regarding legislative bills related to public lands takeaway proposals that he always supports.

Labrador seems to be completely infatuated with ridding Idaho of federal public lands, which so many people use and cherish and that now bring into the U.S. economy nearly $1 trillion annually. Labrador has been part of the professional politicians gang of three that attempted to help trade away nearly 40,000 acres in the proposed Lochsa Land Exchange.

I'd like Rep. Labrador to answer in print when he thinks his constituents gave him permission to continually attempt taking away their lands that a big majority cherish so much and want these available for their children, grandchildren etc.? Did he poll his constituents? If so, he should show the results of his poll. If he didn't poll the people, what is his rationale for continued efforts that the majority oppose and brings in so much to the national economy?

He is apparently going to continue his chosen lifelong professional politician occupation in the next election cycle. What if throngs of people who usually vote for any candidate with the big R demand that he poll the people regarding his continuous efforts to trade their lands away and then act accordingly? What do Idahoans have to do to get him to listen to them? We know what they need to do this time.
