PorkBusters: Holding Sen. Allard Accountable

UPDATE: Welcome to Instapundit readers. Be sure to join in the discussion.


I am writing an email today to my Senator, Sen. Wayne Allard, and will be following up with a phone call, asking for his position regarding cutting or reducing pork spending in Colorado.
Dear. Sen. Allard,

First, thank you for all your hard work. I have followed your positions and voting record, and appreciate most of your positions and the work you do for the citizens of Colorado.

I am writing in regards to a national campaign against pork, initiated through various bloggers. Through various web sites, it has come to my knowledge that there is $105,973,000 in pork just in the state of Colorado. The full list I referred to is shown here:

I would like to have your official response in regards to what you and your office are doing to reduce excessive spending at the Federal level, and what your commitment and actual specific work is in regards to cutting, or reducing these specific spending items? More than a general spirit, I would like to hear what bills you are working to eliminate pork from, and what your commitment is for the future.

Please know that I will be posting your response, or lack of, on my blog, and linking to it at N.Z. Bear's new PorkBusters page for public review. Thank you ahead of time for your time and work in responding to my question.

Best Regards,

Josue M Sierra

I have sent this today and hope to have a response sooner rather than later. We'll see what we get.
