Re: “Why is Heck bashing tea partiers?” (letter, 10-27).
The writer’s assertion that Denny Heck bashes tea partiers or anyone else on TV or in person is fanciful.
I have had many opportunities to hear Heck speak in various places, from coffees to public forums. I cannot recall him bashing anyone. He advocates rational, empirically sound solutions to the difficult problems we face. Coming from him, that is not idle. He is a man with substantial experience in the Legislature and in the executive offices of government. He knows whereof he speaks.
In addition, after Heck left government service, he created one of our state’s significant nonpartisan institutions – TVW. Then he went into the private sector and created an important business that now employs about 350 workers. Isn’t that the kind of person we need to represent the 10th District in Congress?
