I’ve given our District’s leaders an ample amount of time to condemn the actions of Representative Bill Seitz last week. Let me make clear that there is no place where making disparaging comments against anyone is appropriate, and we need to hold our elected officials to a much higher standard. Making comments about anyone, whether that be women, people of color, the LGBTQ community, or any other group, is shameful and should not be tolerated. A lack of condemnation for such actions should also not be tolerated. We need strong leaders who will speak out against what is wrong, regardless of the political party they identify with.
