Constituents stand up for Nancy Boyda

In response to a letter to the editor of the Topeka Capital-Journal encouraging the paper to stop covering the good work Congresswoman Nancy Boyda is doing, two folk wrote in to encourage the opposite:

Good news for Kansas

A letter complaining about Nancy Boyda's news coverage in The Capital-Journal ignores this fact: She works. After 10 years of old rubber-stamp Ryun, who did little, achieved less and accomplished nothing beyond being a bobble-headed yes man and self-enrichment through money changer in the temple house deals, Rep. Boyda serves the people of Kansas and thinks like an American.

She has sponsored legislation that benefits Kansas, cooperates with Republicans and supports our fighting men and women. That's news. The Capital-Journal's coverage of her efforts and achievements testifies that Kansans have elected an honest-to-goodness worker. Boyda for Kansans; Kansans for Boyda. That's good news. Very good news.

DAVID L. TANGEMAN, Topeka

Representative at work

In response to the letter by Jack Kirchhofer (Jan. 6) complaining of the number of articles in The Capital-Journal about Rep. Nancy Boyda, the number of news items is a reflection of her active role in representing the district. We haven't had a member of Congress this active on our behalf in decades.

Given the enormous amount of money blown off in Washington these days, I'm pleased to know that my tax dollars are well spent at least by my congressional representative. Keep reporting.

SARAH J. WOOD, Topeka

Couldn't have it it better ourselves.
