My letter to Representative Steve Womack:
I am beyond disappointed that you were unable to find an agreement and chose to be part of the shut down of the federal government.
In business we always have to work with people, products or ideas that we do not agree with. What we are called to do is to find a compromise.
When laws are written and signed we are also supposed to follow them. Even when we do not like them.
That said, I am at work today. There is no shut down of the American workforce and we are counting on you to find a way to reopen the government ASAP.
Small business and small town advocate -
His canned email response:
I appreciate you taking the time to contact me. Unfortunately, due to the government shutdown, there will be a delay in providing you with a response. Please know that I value your opinion. Should you need immediate assistance, please contact my Rogers office at 479-464-0446 or my D.C. office at 202.225.4301.
