As a proud and progressive Democrat, I disagree with most of Matt Gurtler’s positions as I don’t believe they are in the short or long-term best interest of our country and state. However, I’d like to applaud him on two things.
First, I sincerely appreciate him taking the time each week in the paper to recap his constituents here in Rabun County so that we are informed of how he voted and why he voted the way he did.
Second, I appreciate his willingness to be honest about his peers and the reasons they may or may not be voting on a particular issue. While others mights see youth and naivety in not knowing how to pick battles, I believe he is doing what he believes is right and so I applaud that consistent ethic even though I may disagree with his conclusions.
