To the Journal editor:
I was appalled to find out that state Rep. Sara Cambensy voted to limit the power of the Governor and the MDHHS Director in a pandemic.
Cambensy, D-Marquette, issued a press release in an attempt to explain why she voted the way she did. When her constituents questioned her judgement she decided to lecture the very people who put her in office saying, “they don’t understand the private sector.”
This remind me of the same tone and tactic she used when she was a Marquette city commisioner. It is quite obvious that she still doesn’t like to work with people or learned how to work with people, including Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and other Democratic leaders.
What’s even more troublesome to me is Rep. Cambensy continues to side with the Republican Party, which have absolutely no credibility on anything related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the spring, summer and into the fall, all the GOP legislature did was undermine the work of the governor and her administration.
The GOP was finally successful when the State Supreme Court, ruled that the legislature delegated its duties unconstitutionally in 1945. The governor went back to the drawing board to find solutions with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to try to protect us all. I applaud her for her effort!
If Rep. Cambensy wants a seat at the table to represent her constituents she should start by introducing a bill to help with COVID 19 relief. She hasn’t introduced any bill since September of this year and that bill wasn’t COVID 19 related.
I’ve thought for a long time that she is an ineffective legislator and she continues to demonstrate that in the middle of a pandemic.
