Letter to the Editor: Looking for a Do-Over in Congressional Primary

I want a redo of our recent election.  With all that is at stake this coming November, somehow the two congressional candidates which are moving forward are both nothing more than puppets for their political parties.

On the Republican side we have Justin Fareed , who has NO clue about politics.  I don’t even think he completely understands the commitment to being a member of Congress.  He signed up for a debate and only a week before cancelled stating he was had “family matters” to attend to and instead attended a college football game!  Am I the only one who sees a problem here!

Then on the Democrat side you have Salud Carbajal, who trash talked Katcho Achadjian during the entire campaign then came back with an ad saying Katcho was trash talking him?! Again, I am confused!

In his interview with KSBY he said that the woman’s reproductive system helped him win.  Did my body just get exploited for a congressional candidate’s campaign?

I may have not always agreed with Katcho but one thing I know he was a candidate for the people and not a puppet for a political party! My vote still goes to Katcho!

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
