Letters to the Editor: What did Senator Feingold accomplish in 18 years?

Russ Feingold

Raymond from Hilbert and Betty from Plover wrote letters to the editor asking a simple question: what did Senator Feingold accomplish in 18 years?

Raymond from Hilbert:

I really wonder what Russ did the 18 years he was in the same office because that’s quite a few years.

If he felt he was doing such a good job, why did he get voted out of office? Why in the world would he want to go back?

Tax and spend is all I hear from Feingold. Everyone, please really listen. I feel we need to absolutely give Johnson another term.

Betty from Plover:

Former Sen. Feingold was in office for 18 years. With that seniority you would expect him to have held some committee chairmanship….especially since the Democrat Party was in control of House and Senate most of that time. His own party apparently didn’t consider him a leader.

In his first term, Senator Ron Johnson has been appointed to the very important chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee. His peers recognize his skilled leadership.

Senator Johnson and his family live in Wisconsin; he started a company in Wisconsin; that company employs thousands of Wisconsin residents. He really is for Wisconsin.

I will put Ron Johnson’s leadership and Wisconsin values up against former Senator Feingold any day of the week.
