  1. This is the answer I got when emailing My Congressman Mike Honda.

    Your zip code indicates that you are outside of the 15th District of California. Regrettably, I am unable to reply to any email from constituents outside of the 15th District of California.

    I can vote for him, but cannot communicate with Him?

    I guess you should not expect to much from your elected officials.

  2. Stark is still are congressman until January when the next session begins West #1

  3. Understand Tony, but it seems that they should listen to there constituants, right after they got elected.

  4. #3…Bruce, constituants should be spelled constituents.
    Like in the constituents of Fremont just elected a business killer.

  5. Irvington’s constituents #2 ARE gonna give OUR pal West #3 a pass on this one.

    BTW West,
    Don’t expect to much to change after January either. I’m afraid we won’t be getting much attention from a congressman for a while. Hayward and Union City won’t either.
    Once again we jump on the bandwagon (or at least get behind it) to get rid of something without realizing they will replace it with nothing.
    That’s why they split the district, to soften it up. We were too Liberal, too Hard Core, too Pro-Labor, Too outspoken for the Demopoopycrats who are
    soooo afraid of upsetting the Republicans (and their bank accouts)
    that they’re just too scared of the fiscal cliff to do what any pragmatic 9-5 er would do… Let the Tax CUTS EXPIRE!!
    oohhhh he’s using exclamation points along with his irrational radical ideas. that’s the same as he’s yelling.
    We are trying to compromise here
    and come up with a real SOLUTION. Not just Rants and Raves.


    Didn’t the President campaign on letting the tax cuts expire?
