Usually I choose to ignore political rhetoric; in this case, I could not.
Sen. Bob Jauch, D-Poplar, is trying to ‘fluff’ over what he has done — he played politics with people’s lives. He chose politics over people. He postured himself and in doing so showed his true colors — he could care less about people of the Northland or how we struggle. He had no intention of working with the governor or anyone across the aisle.
What angers me most is that it was done for political reasons, not based on facts, not based on truth. He wanted no jobs to fall under this governor. That is why Jauch did what he did, plain and simple.
He can explain away all he wants. He can say he is calling the governor, he has written to the governor and any other way he wants to toot his own horn — a bit too little, a bit too late.
If this was the case, why did he sign the recall petition calling for the recall of the governor? I can say I signed the one to recall Bob Jauch, and it is plain and simple that I have no plans of working with Bob any longer. It is time to replace him with someone that looks out for the people, not themselves. I have had enough of the political atmosphere. Many will say “sure you have,” and they mark me as the “top Republican, three-time looser.”
What I am is a true conservative who stands up for what I believe in. I believe in representation for all in a district, not just who you prefer to represent; when the majority speaks the representative should listen. This recall effort to replace Jauch is a nonpartisan, grassroots effort — all across the Northland.
You keep trying to explain yourself Bob. We all know what you are made of.
Editor’s note: Shirl LaBarre filed the declaration to launch a recall petition against Sen. Bob Jauch, D-Poplar.
