Ingham County social worker Liz Meyers has written an opinion piece for the Lansing State Journal that really sums up all there is to know about U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop (R-MI8). I’ll just give you a snippet here, but it really is worth reading in full:
It would be inaccurate to say Rep. Bishop’s staff slammed the door in our face. In fact, we never even got that far. Rather than be allowed near his office, a member of his staff told us we had to stay in the building lobby. He told us that only two or three people at a time were allowed in the office and that attendance by people from the news was strictly prohibited. He went on to tell us that Bishop does not conduct public forums or town hall meetings because he sees them as “disruptive.” We talked briefly in the building lobby, he took our letters and returned to his locked office. As you can guess, we were disappointed, but we weren’t totally surprised.
