We just finished reading the recent Letters to the Editor regarding the dismay and anger at Rep. Jim Hagedorn’s continued support of President Trump despite the baseless accusations of fraud with our recent election. We are also beyond disgusted with his poor response to the horrific events of Jan. 6, where we saw the foundations of our democracy attacked.

We so very much look to our elected officials to support our democracy and collaborate with everyone in both our government and communities to care safely and well for our citizens. Sadly, we see none of this in Rep' Hagedorn’s behavior or words. There was a poster in one of our work offices for years with a photo of ducks following each other with the saying, “Lead, follow, or get out of the way.” Rep. Hagedorn, please get out of the way and let others who know how to recognize truth and how to cooperate with others for the good of our society lead.
