In reference and public response to Michael Koeppen, Florence re: “SENATE DISTRICT 44” (Sep 22), he calls Theresa Manzella an “outsider.” Nothing could be further from the truth!
He’s a liar when he calls Theresa Manzella an “outsider.” She was born in the Bitterroot, and I’m guessing here, probably lived here most of her life, if not all.
The “outsider” is clearly Gorski. Born in Florida, and schooled in California and Washington. Since you seem to like the term “outer fringe” I suggest Gorski clearly fits the “extremist” left having attended Washington University and Berkeley (ranked #22 and #4 respectively on the list of “America’s Most Liberal Colleges” by CBS). https://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/americas-most-liberal-colleges-ranked/47/
We see how those “extremist ideologies” of liberal policies are working in liberal strongholds such as Washington, California, and other states: rioting, burning, destruction, rampant racism, extreme taxation, unmanaged fires burning out of control (which we’re seeing here now, too, thanks to extreme ideologies of outer fringe liberalism!), theft of Constitutional RIghts, sanctuary cities for illegal aliens (law breakers!), etc.
We do NOT need or want Gorski’s extremist ideologies or outsider liberal policies here. If she wants to represent her people, she needs to move back to CA or WA!
