Letter to the editor
Holding elected officials accountable
Sen. Roger Wicker, Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, and
Rep. Kelly all voted to prolong the 35-day partial gov-
ernment shutdown until Trump gave them permission
to reopen it. It was only then that they voted to reopen
the government without funding for a wall.
Who do they represent? Are they standing up for
Mississippians who were furloughed, or had to work
without pay for more than a month or those who de-
pend on government assistance to buy food? No! They
were standing with their Dear Leader.
Let’s hold our representatives accountable to us,
not an empty promise.
Genevieve Gibson

On this date:
In 1606, Englishman

In 1865, the U.S. House

In 1917, during World
