Like many other Americans, I am disgusted and amazed at the lack of leadership, competence and representation from our elected officials across the board. Fortunately, Arizona’s sixth district can be relieved that it has a quality representative in Congress who upholds the concept of genuine representation and adheres to the collective voice of his constituents.
There are no surprises with Rep. Jeff Flake. From day one of his first term, he made it clear that he was an advocate of fiscal responsibility. Five terms later, he continues to actively fight profligate spending. Despite the unpopularity of doing so at times, Rep. Flake has the internal courage to stand behind his promise and conviction of protecting taxpayer’s money.
If there is a time where we need fiscal leadership in Congress, it is now. In an era of ongoing and lavish government spending, every voice and vote to counteract it is necessary. Congressman Jeff Flake is a leader who has already proven his commitment to thwarting big government. He needs no new introduction, just the district’s collective concurrence for another term. Let’s grant him that special privilege and let him do what he does best — stand up to wasteful and unnecessary spending.
