Regarding Alex Hardison’s Nov. 28 letter “Schrader must serve Central Oregon,” a lot of us out here think Oregon would be far better off with Jamie McLeod-Skinner as U.S. representative than Kurt Schrader, who has become difficult to work with, likes to play power games to keep us guessing where he stands on issues, and uses his potential positions to press for political support before he commits. Skinner is open and direct about her positions, especially on fighting climate change and steps we must take if we have any chance to save the planet. She doesn’t play games with us; she knows the issues and lets us know where she stands.
