LETTER: This is what he wants to hear at King town halls

March 24, 2019

For those who voted for or support Congressman Steve King, you were most likely glad to hear about his 39-county town hall tour. Those who didn’t are probably saying, “What took you so long?”

I myself want to know how he can throw his hand over his heart when someone strikes up “The Star-Spangled Banner,” but he will fly a Confederate flag on his desk.

These are the words I want to hear coming out of Steve King’s mouth at his town halls: Tariff, Medicare, prison reform, tax reform, jobs that pay a living wage, education, Social Security and a return to states’ rights.

Contrary to what his staff would like you to believe, his re-election is facing problems or otherwise he wouldn’t face a primary challenge from those in his own party and Gov. Kim Reynolds wouldn’t be looking for the nearest bunker. - Fred Hollingshead, Sioux City
