Letter: Sens. Hoeven and Cramer disappoint once again

The Buhrs criticize Sens. Hoeven and Cramer for not voting to appoint a North Dakota native to a federal judgeship.

Letter to the editor FSA

We were pleased to read the nice article in The Forum on Nov. 24 about a successful North Dakota native, Sarala Vidya Nagala, who is from a very successful and generous North Dakota family, the Dr. Rup and Dr. Vani Nagala family.


We were not pleased to see that Sens. Cramer and Hoeven both voted against her confirmation to the position of federal judge in Connecticut. Is a position as federal judge so political? This lack of support from our delegation is depressing.
Sharon Buhr and Dr. James Buhr live in Valley City, N.D.

Dr. McDonough writes, "When two more long term care staff died during the delta wave, where was Human Services? When employees of public schools died of COVID, where was Department of Public Instruction? Where is the governor?"
Opperman writes, "McFeely presents no valid argument. He only insinuates with names and quotes to arouse the anger of those who think like him. In doing this, he has painted with slander what many might consider an intriguing new educational project in Fargo: a K-12 school that will provide a classical liberal arts education in the Western philosophical and biblical traditions."
Archuleta writes, "About that research, it is deeply flawed. The National Education Policy Center at the University of Colorado reviewed the 'research' referenced by Jackson and concluded, based on its methodological flaws and ignorance of 'peer-reviewed research that has found negative consequences of school choice reforms,' that: 'These shortcomings undermine the report’s conclusions and render it useless for purposes of guiding policymaking.'"
Kerpen writes, "While AARP maintains that it merely supports Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s Medicare “negotiation” plan because it wants to lower seniors’ drug costs, that simply isn’t the case."
