Letter: Johnson out of touch with constituents

Joann Wiltrakis re Sen. Betsy Johnson

Published on June 26, 2018 9:25AM

I am writing to take issue with The Daily Astorian’s description of Betsy Johnson as a “moderate Democrat” in the June 21 article, “Johnson, Witt dinged by fellow Democrats.”

Betsy Johnson is not a Democrat, let alone a moderate one. She consistently votes against Democratic positions on guns, unions and the environment, to name a few. The fact that she “was dumbstruck that anybody cares” that she supported Republican Dennis Richardson for Secretary of State proves she is out of touch with a large portion of her constituents.

She does not represent me, and should consider resigning from the Democratic party.

JoAnn Wiltrakis
