John_BoehnerThe Cincinnati Enquirer’s editorial, “Don’t forget us, Mr. Speaker”, gives Representative Boehner a soft rebuke for not making time for his constituents in US House District 8. The lack of access has rankled enough constituents that they have formed the Ohio Accountability Project and have requested a town how meeting during which they can address Boehner personally rather than through staff.

Even the Enquirer is having difficulty gaining access to Boehner who has declined to meet with their editorial board when he’s been in town.

That the Enquirer is speaking out on this issue should raise a few eyebrows. Even though Boehner is a national figure, it is the people of the 8th District who put him into office, and they deserve as much representation as the rest of America.
