Do ever have one of those LOL moments? I had one when I read a recent letter ("It’s time for honesty from incumbent politicians," The Daily News, Jan 20).
The intent was to slander our current congressman, but the reality is the letter to the editor was a sham for focusing on just one issue — red snapper.
The truth is that our incumbent Congressman Randy Weber has been working with all fishermen to extend federal recreational days for red snapper, but in a sustainable and responsible manner.
In 2017, Weber introduced the Give Our Fishermen Immediate Snapper Help Act — also known as the GO FISH Act. This legislation is a direct result of working with all interested parties.
But one of Weber’s opponents, lifelong bureaucrat Bill Sargent, wants to hide that information from you because he is not interested in helping commercial fishermen or the restaurant industry that serves legal, fresh seafood.
Red snapper is important to our coastal community, but so are issues like tax reform and jobs, national security, illegal immigration, our military, limited government and individual liberty. Congressman Weber has helped lead the way on each of these issues.
Congressman Weber’s leadership is the real deal!
