Gus is NOT for us.
Gus Bilirakis has these cute little signs around his district saying, “Gus is for us.” He is not. Old Gus is a member of congress from a district in Pasco county Florida. That would be Florida’s 12th district in the Tampa area.
I am a twenty year veteran of the United States Air Force. For the past two years or so I have been ignored by Gus and his staff. I have emailed them to no avail. They have ignored the emails and removed me from Gus’ newsletter list. Apparently to keep me in the dark for whatever reason.
So I finally sent a real letter to his Washington office and apparently it got to the right person and got noticed. Suddenly I received a call and then an email from his chief of staff an Elizabeth Hittos who told me they didn’t get my emails. Yeah, right.
Funny, I have been represented by Ginny Brown Waite, Richard Nugent and never had a problem emailing them through their website. I also never had a problem receiving their newsletter in fact I still receive one from Rich Nugent.
She even told me they have a retired military man working in Gus’s office and yet I didn’t hear from him either and I am a 20 year veteran. I was enlisted so this guy is probably a retired officer and too good to correspond with me i.e. the riff raff.
Anyway this Elizabeth Hittos blamed me for not receiving the newsletter as they misinterpreted my saying that I didn’t want to hear from their office. So if they didn’t get my emails where did it say I didn’t want to hear from them? I hadn’t received anything from them in two years or longer. She claims they didn’t receive my emails so how did they assume I didn’t want to hear from them?
Then this Elizabeth Hittos says she will get me answers on several subjects and then I hear NOTHING again. That was July 8th and NOTHING. That’s three damn months and she said she would get back to me early the following week.
I again sent a letter to the Washington office again and apparently someone there has been told to ignore me now. I received no answer since then.
Politicians lie and their staffs too.
They have a 90% reelection rate so they think they can do anything they want. They must be right because voters are too dumb to look at records or find out what these losers have done while in office. It is see the name and vote for him. And in this case of Bilirakis his daddy held the office from 1983 to 2007and when he retired good old Gus jumped in and ran and the moron voters seeing the Bilirakis name voted for him probably not realizing it was Michael Bilirakis’ son.
As for me I don’t vote for any incumbent. They have to dazzle me with their record and that is NEVER going to happen because they don’t do a damn thing. Try to look up Gus’ record. See how many votes occurred during his term. How many votes he showed up for and how many votes he cast and for what. Or is he like Marco Rubio that doesn’t show up and then when he does he votes against things his constituents want.
What do they do while in office?
WTF do they do? Try to find information on votes he made. Legislation he submitted. As far as I can tell old Gus has done nothing. I see no bills submitted. I see no bills he voted for. All I see is a career politician who has never held a real job.
We have a lot of those in Florida I am sure you do too wherever you are. Guys like Charlie Christ who has lost in the last three or four elections and here he is running again in 2016. WTF. Why doesn’t this guy take a hint WE DON’T WANT HIM IN ANY OFFICE IN ANY CAPACITY. Another career politician that can’t get a real job or never held a real job.
So if you live in old Gus’ district vote his ass out. I will vote against him I don’t care if they run a goat against him and I will continue to vote against him. Old Gus is not for US or you or me or anyone but Gus Bilirakis.
