A letter to the editor in the March 8 issue of the Tama News Herald, signed by Beth, Karla, Maryan, Linda, Pam, Midge and Jeannie, furnished the following information for the readers in the second sentence, and I quote "When our district boundary changed we lost Senator Boswell and Sodders became our new Senator", check it out.
Please be informed there is not now, nor has there ever been a Senator Boswell representing this district. Representative Boswell has represented our district in the U.S. House of Representatives and will continue till the next election.
As for Mr. Sodders, he has not become our Senator. He will need to be elected in the general election to accomplish that seat. Our present State Senator is Tim Kapucian .
Ever since one person, one vote, went into effect years ago, I have wondered how a person who could not read or write would know who was running for what and what they stood for.
Thanks for your time.
