Letter: Power of politicians

EDITOR:

On May 14, Tom Lorenzen has written one of the best Talk of the Town columns ever published by The Daily Courier. What was so important was when he wrote, “We need candidates willing to serve our interest, not their own and those of their party.”

Previously, Dr. Ron Barnes wrote in one of his Granddaddyisms: “To me a politician is a person who believes that self-interest and/or party interest trump (excuse Dr. Barnes choice of words) the public interest.”

The system is broken and the only ones who can fix it are the politicians and they benefit from a broken system. We are now witnessing our democracy self-destruct.
