I live in Representative Slotkin's district. Policy aside she's been a huge improvement over her predecessor Mike Bishop. She's really made an effort to get out and meet her constituents by holding multiple Town Hall meetings. Bishop was reluctant to hold any Town Halls as if he was afraid of his constituents. He did have conference calls but they would always call me after the call was in progress. so far, I've been very impressed with Ms.Slotkin. She's smart, thoughtful, has background in government, and seems to genuinely care about her constituents. It will be a shame if she gets voted out of office if Trump gets impeached. Trump's impeachment seems likely based on what he did - working with foreign government for election help is just wrong.

I'm so impressed with her. To have her constituents speak about such conspiracy theories, which she, having been in the CIA, had dealt with on a daily basis, and give a thoughtful and intelligent response that hopefully they digested, renews my hope that Trump has not ruined our country beyond repair

you would think they would have realized there are ZERO republicans in support of an inquiry or impeachment... it is DOA. but I'm honestly praying that democrats are dumb enough to carry on with it.
