LETTER: We deserve answers from elected officials

To the Editor:

I am tired of the candidates who do everything in their power not to answer questions. It seems like most campaigns now hold voters in contempt, as if we are out of line for asking the candidates questions. Instead of answering hard questions, they dip and dodge and contort themselves so they don't have to take a stand on the issues.

As a South Dakota citizen, I would like to be represented in Washington by someone who is willing to talk to people and answer questions, and not by someone who is depending on out-of-state money to run his campaign. No one is going to agree with their elected officials all of the time, but having someone who will look you in the eye and give you a straight answer is a pretty good start.
