Extremely disappointed that the votes of a large and burgeoning portion of your constituency do not matter to you. Your advocacy for de-regulation of the farm “industry” is revelatory of self-interest and the resultant desire to please only a certain segment of voters in order to assure your election to office.
Received a canned letter today from your office outlining why you side with the agricultural voting block and cater to their support rather than insisting upon the humane treatment of animals…one of many replies received from you throughout the past months.
Remember that this Earth, that we all have a stake in, generates — by the second — more and more individuals whose concern resides in kindness, a fair appraisal of environmental issues, and the welfare and yes, rights, of animals.
We shall not support any future candidacy of you, sir.
We shall urge others to look elsewhere for the prioritizing of intelligent, humane treatment of animals as well as respectful attention to those voters who have the good sense to care deeply and responsibly about all forms of life.
Thank you for reading.

The above was written in response to a form letter I received in today’s mail. This form letter was from Stutzman’s office about my email regarding the Egg Products Inspection Act (HR 3798). Below is also an email I received from his office…
