In George Mavrik’s letter to the editor in last week’s paper, he indicated that our community has been ignored by our new Congressman Duncan Hunter Jr. I would like to point out that shortly after Congressman Hunter’s district was realigned to include Fallbrook, the congressman’s staff arranged a meeting with the congressman to meet with community and business leaders to find out what issues were critical to Fallbrook.

As a member of the FPUD board, we also asked for a meeting to discuss the consolidation of FPUD and RMWD and he responded immediately.

Congressman Hunter’s area representative Rick Terazas has attended a number of Fallbrook events and has responded anytime his services were needed.

Last year, the congressman hosted a summer BBQ in Fallbrook and is planning on another one this year.

I suggest a call to the district office at (619) 448-5201. It doesn’t seem to me that we have been ignored.

It seems to me that Mr. McDougal made Mr. Mavrik's point. With whom did Congressman Hunter meet? Community and business leaders. But not the people, the little people who have no influence, and often no ability to get local community and business leaders to listen to THEIR concerns.
