Poll: Will newly elected U.S. Congressman Chris Lee get the job done for the people of Genesee County?

posted by Philip Anselmo in congress, Chris Lee, Republican, poliics.

Earlier this morning, we ran a post about Congressman Chris Lee's swearing-in promises of cooperation and transparency. Sure, we were a little crictical of Lee's claims, but we feel that he engendered our reaction through his own campaign strategy of frequently absenting himself from political debates and interviews with the press.

That was our take, for better or worse. Now we want to hear from you. In the press release Lee's office sent out yesterday, it was announced that the congressman would be holding a pair of open houses at his district offices in Williamsville and Greece. Lee does not have an office in Genesee County. We're still waiting to find out what if any representation Lee will have in our area. With that in mind, here is today's poll:

Let’s think about what we are asking the man to do. We are asking a freshman congressman with absolutely no government experience, to go to Washington as a member of a party that is just about extinct and accomplish something that we can’t put our finger on. On top of all this, the government is broke and our economy is on the brink of collapse. Like Chris Lee or not, his chances of success are non-existent.

How can we expect a guy who refuses to do on camera interviews with local news services to possibly represent our concerns. What a joke.
