Miloscia receptive to constituents

I am writing in response to Sam Rise’s Feb. 10 letter regarding District 30 Sen. Mark Miloscia. Contrary to what Sam shared in that letter, I have always known Sen. Miloscia to be receptive and responsive to his constituents’ input.

I have spoken to Sen. Miloscia on a number of occasions about issues as varied as homelessness and free speech rights. On all occasions, Miloscia has always listened to what I have to say and offered clear and cogent responses.

Further, I often contact him to share my thoughts on bills that are being proposed in the state Legislature, and he always responds to my messages.

I cannot say the same about Kristine Reeves and Mike Pellicciotti, our two District 30 representatives. I have contacted them about five different bills just in the past two months, requesting a response from them, and I have heard back from neither of them.

I appreciate Miloscia’s responsiveness and will definitely be supporting him when he is next up for re-election.
