To the editor:

Rob Bishop may run again for the Congressional seat bought and paid for by the oil and gas industry. What would big oil do without their representative if he retired? Hey here’s a thought. How about we elect someone who’ll represent the people of this district. Maybe someone who votes for a tiered minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2025. Bishop voted against a minimum wage increase because our Congressional marionette gets his orders from his corporate masters and they love poverty wages. Maybe this time we could elect someone who’ll represent Utah values and stand-up against Trump when he spouts his racist drivel designed to divide us as a nation. Is moral fortitude too much to ask from our representative? I think Bishop should just retire and collect his Social Security. You know, that Social Security he calls an “entitlement” and has tried to gut since taking office. Rob has robbed this country of enough public lands. In 2020, we need to clean up the Trump-stained swamp. Bishop need not apply.
