Gardner badly falling short

Considering the latest evasion tactics of Cory Gardner, I can only conclude he is a senator only in his own mind — in his imagination.

When confronted by local news media, the senator evaded questions about the impeachment trial (for which he is a juror), escaping to the DIA parking lot for a meeting (another figment of his imagination?). He has also evaded the question about whether it is OK for a president to seek foreign assistance to win an election. Yes or no, Cory. That question doesn't demand an elaborate answer.

We constituents can't ask him directly about his positions as he's not held an open town hall in over two years, so we rely on the free press to get answers for us.

When an incumbent represents me, I want to hear full-throated, clear, concise statements to questions posed about where they stand on issues. I expect regular opportunities to interact with them throughout their term of office. I expect — no, I demand — accountability and transparency. 

Otherwise, that person is a phantom to me. This suburban woman doesn't vote for phantoms.
