To the Editor:

It is apparent to me that Jerry Rubendall doesn't read the paper as faithfully as I do. It should be apparent to the voters in South Dakota that this 2016 is a year to vote for a representative again. All of a sudden she is concerned about the Indians in the state. Why? Probably because several million dollars allotted to our Indians to assist them to go to college. Because suicide on the reservations is so high. All of a sudden the state is concerned about them. Not really.

And Jerry is so concerned that anyone would accuse her to be for Big Oil. It is right before you right now. That pipeline to run through South Dakota is benefiting Big Oil. And she sure is all for that. Anyone who really thinks about this knows that Big Oil is paying Congress to vote for this line. And I'd like to know how South Dakota is planning on that line when it was defeated in Washington. Don't we listen to the law?

It is time the Republican party stops all attempts to destroy our environment. Even Pope Francis is concerned and correctly says that the destruction of the environment is the ruin of the world. We don't have to wait for the end of the world; we'll destroy it ourselves.
I have some good advice for Jerry. Read The Daily paper; it prints the things the Congress and Senate vote for. Then tell me I don't know about the votes of our representative. I am a Democrat, but I don't always vote Democratic.

I voted for Bill Janklow every time he ran. I was a teacher and because I read, I knew he was 100 percent for education. I often vote locally for a Republican because I know how they vote. I really wish there were no political parties. Then people would know what they were voting for. I do read and I know what this woman voted for in connection with ethanol.
