Rep. Latta visits The Beacon

On Friday U.S. Representative Robert Latta, whose 5th district includes parts of western Ottawa County, visited The Beacon’s office in Port Clinton.

Rep. Latta talked about the four issues that he most commonly hears about from his constituents. They are: regulatory issues, health care, taxes and energy. Latta serves on the Energy and Commerce, Telecommunications and Regulatory committees.

According to Latta, the brightest spot amongst these issues and committees is energy, as it is predicted that by 2020 the United States will pass Saudi Arabia in energy production and has the potential to be the world’s largest supplier of natural gas. Latta’s recommendation on energy is that “we don’t pick the winners and losers” with energy companies. 

When asked what he can do or is doing to help break the partisan deadlock in Washington, he said that the administration has made bipartisanship difficult, but also that “Republicans need to do better at communicating”, and “I really think we can all work together.”

When asked what his constituents can do, he advised that they “stay informed and in contact, by email, mail and calls. Never say ‘my voice doesn’t matter. I am just one person.’  I look at every letter. Don’t be afraid to talk to your friends and neighbors (about policies and political issues). If you don’t, others will.”
