An open letter to Heidi Heitkamp: You came to Mott to campaign for votes on Sept. 23.
You sent me several emails inviting me to the event. I decided to attend and hopefully get a chance to talk to you about several concerns I have of a political nature.
I tried several times to speak to you during the campaign event, but every time I began to ask you a question, you distracted yourself and spoke to other people in the room. Although I felt you were being rude, I took into account you wanted to talk to everyone throughout the evening.
I waited for you to give your speech and then patiently waited my turn to ask my questions.
The minute I asked a simple question, I was whisked away to another room to talk to one of your handlers. They promised me that you would get back to me with answers to my questions and helpfully answer my questions.
A call was not returned until Oct. 21 and she called back, and on Oct. 22 she sent an email answering one my questions.
On the note of you not wanting to communicate with me, Rick Berg not only answers my emails and returns my phone calls, he has even looked into helping me.
He has invited me to join him in various parades and has put me in touch with Sen. John Hoeven. I have voted Democrat in the past, but after my experience with you, can you connect the dots and see how not only I, but others I speak with will be voting?
Rose Bond, Mott
