Ribble is 'the invisible congressman'

I am responding to Sara Ramaker's recent letter to the editor. I can understand why Reid Ribble's office would not answer her question. Congressman Ribble voted against the Violence Against Women Act, a vote he surely cannot be proud of. It is also rather unfortunate that not a word was mentioned about Ribble's vote in the Press Gazette.

Ribble has a pattern of not answering his constituents. Back in 2011, I tried three times, to no avail, to find out why he voted for $12 billion in taxpayer subsidies to the oil industry and then stated that he was against those very subsidies. Ribble also has a pattern of avoiding his constituents to a degree unmatched by any previous Northeast Wisconsin representative. He does not live in our district, and as far as I know, is the only congressman in Wisconsin history who does not meet with his constituents in town hall meetings. He really seems determined on earning his nickname "the invisible congressman."
