Letter: McNerney didn't represent his district

Dear Editor,

If you are a citizen of the 11th Congressional District and oppose government takeover of our health care system (Obamacare), then please read on. Our Congressman, Jerry McNerney, voted for Obamacare again on March 21, despite all the opposition from his constituents.

We must remind Congressman McNerney that he was elected to represent the citizens of the 11th Congressional District, and he works for us. We also need to remind him he was not elected to serve Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama.

Please remember this when it comes time to vote in November, and let's elect someone who listens and truly represents us in Washington. If you are concerned by the direction Congress is taking our country, but frustrated because we can't seem to do anything about it, we can. We can control who represents us in Washington, and that's the first step in getting them to listen to us.

Dom Ochoa
