McConnell urged to support For the People Act

Editor’s Note: This letter was sent to U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell and a copy was sent for publication in The Mayfield Messenger:

Dear Senator McConnell,

As your constituent, I have written you on numerous occasions regarding issues I feel are crucially important. I am writing to you again to express my support of S.B. 1, the For the People Act. I do so realizing that you have expressed opposition to even allowing this important piece of legislation to be considered by the members of your party. I respectfully ask you to reconsider.

If you maintain the obstructionist and anti-democratic path you are currently on, the destruction you are doing to our nation and its institutions will be unparalleled in modern history. You have to know, for I do not believe that you are unintelligent, that the overwhelming majority of the American people support the measures in S.B. 1.

It is imperative that we ensure the integrity of our future elections against the kind of assault made by former President Trump and his supporters. It is imperative that the right to vote be protected for every American. You see these imperatives intellectually. Please please, do the right thing for once in your long and nefarious career. History will not be kind to you.
