Fischbach failed to earn my vote
To the editor:
Rep. (Michelle) Fischbach voted against the peaceful transfer of power even after the violent attack on the Capitol and the police officers defending it on Jan. 6. Last week, Fischbach voted against the Electoral College Reform act which will prevent future attempts against the peaceful transfer of power. She continues to support that position by selling offensive merchandise on her website.
Rep Fischbach failed to procure any funds for our 7th District from the recently passed bipartisan infrastructure bill. Minnesota’s Republican representatives Pete Stauber and Tom Emmer each procured millions for infrastructure projects in their districts, but Fischbach did not procure any for our 7th, the largest Congressional district in Minnesota.
She is quoted in the Minnneapolis Star Tribune, July 16, 2022: “I was just concerned that we would be putting in the earmarks and not really knowing what or how it was going to go through the procedures and process,” Fischbach said.
As a result, Fischbach did not even try to get funds for the 7th.
Fischbach failed to certify the sacred vote of “We the people” and the peaceful transfer of power. Fischbach failed to procure badly needed Infrastructure funding for our district.
Fischbach failed to earn my vote. I will be voting for Jill Abahsain.
