Letter: Collins has earned title of ‘worst representative’

Collins has earned title of ‘worst representative’

In view of The News article about Rep. Chris Collins’ boast, “Do you know how many millionaires I’ve made in Buffalo the past few months?” regarding his lobbying for a bill that may help a stock he and his associates are heavily invested in, I’d like to say, “I’m still waiting for my call, Chris. Any stock tips for constituents?” Truthfully, I’d be more impressed if he’d boasted that he just came up with an idea to replace Obamacare.

His enthusiasm for self-promotion and profit combined with the “honor” of being the first congressman to endorse Donald Trump for president and ridiculing Rep. John Lewis, the civil rights giant, on Martin Luther King Day, compel me to declare him the “worst representative in Congress.” I encourage him to consider serving his constituents even more by stepping down from office for a presidential run in 2020, perhaps with Carl Paladino on his ticket.
