Jacquelynn Leisos Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

   Democracy is at stake!  Republican lead state legislators are passing laws making it hard for people to vote. Some are even passing bills to change the vote if they don’t like it. At least 43 states have or are enacting bills making it difficult for people to vote.   The election of 2020 was the safest election and there was no fraud on the side of Democrats.  It’s important that the US Senate pass For the People Act so that we will not lose democracy.   The Filibuster needs to be reformed or ended.  The Senate should not go on  August break until the For the People Act has been passed. They also need to pass the John Lewis Act.  We need to call our Senators and our House members to tell them that they need to vote for both the For the People Act and the John Lewis Act.  President Biden needs to get involved in getting Congress to pass it and to make a cut out for the filibuster to pass voting rights legislation. If needed we need to march in the streets to save democracy.  This is important and needs to happen soon.
