Letter to editor: No more elected lawyers, please

To the editor:

The US Senate boasts 57 lawyers while the House  contains 168 lawyers.

It has always been my understanding the legislative branch of government is tasked with finding solutions and consensus.

It is ironic that we, as a nation, continue to send representatives to Congress who are trained to argue. Both sides of the issue.

Argue.

For the  sake of arguing.

Wouldn’t it be better to send representatives who have proven to be solution and consensus driven?

Enough lawyers, please. From either side of the aisle.

Bruce Hemming,     Advance
