'Sudden Concern' Over Drug Use

August 31, 1986

Another week, another letter from the 30th Congressional District's Democrat Rep. Matthew (Marty) Martinez, who of late has shown sudden concern on a variety of issues facing this district and nation. This week his letter focuses on drugs and the national epidemic it has become.

Certainly, drugs have become a major problem and we definitely must become tough and crack down on drug crime. However, how does Martinez explain his vote three weeks ago in Congress when he voted against transferring funds from the arts to be used for curbing and fighting drugs? Was art more important than human lives that particular week? Or ever?

Marty, I can hardly wait until your next letter to see how you will again fall flat on your face. Does it makes you feel great to spend your constituents' tax money to write letters to them each week?
