Lance is NJ's most accessible representative

I am a college student and resident of Summit, and I was fortunate to begin my professional career interning for Congressman Lance. After spending a summer interning in Congressman Lance’s Westfield District office, I was excited when I got the call informing me I had been selected for the internship program in Congressman Lance’s Washington office. I had followed Congressman Lance’s work closely ever since I developed an interest in politics, and was eager to be a part of his team for a second time.

 

I have seen firsthand how attentive Congressman Lance is to the needs of his constituents. During my time in the District office, it became especially clear to me that Congressman Lance and his team are dedicated to addressing the concerns and problems that his constituents face. In the Westfield office, I was able to see firsthand how the office closed a record number of constituent services cases. And in the Washington office, I saw how important the views of his constituents are to Congressman Lance when he’s faced with making crucial decisions on their behalf. He reviews calls and letters closely and carefully considers the best interests of his constituents and the nation. I saw how he dealt with each group and meeting with respect, listening to their views and making informed decisions. Congressman Lance is generous with his time and attention, and if he had the opportunity, would take the time to personally greet each group coming to the office for a tour of Capitol Hill.

 

After holding over 70 town hall events, in addition to how important he considers his constituents’ views, it’s safe to say Leonard Lance is New Jersey’s most accessible representative.  In such divisive times we should send someone to Washington who cares deeply about the views of their constituents. And I know firsthand that Congressman Lance cares.

Dear Editor:

 

I read with interest in a local newspaper regarding the Union county democrat party political infighting for their “county chair” selection. There were 2 letters juxtaposed, each one listing supporters of either Senator Scutari or Fanwood Mayor Mahr, who are the two main people vying for the “boss” position.
