Brad Ashford calls for end to lawmakers sending taxpayer-funded mailings
WASHINGTON — Rep. Brad Ashford, D-Neb., wants to cut off the mass mailings sent from Capitol Hill lawmakers every year on the taxpayers’ dime.
“We must end special privileges for members of Congress,” Ashford said in a press release Tuesday. “Nebraskans expect elected officials to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars. That’s why I will not spend tax dollars for self-promoting mass mailings, which do not help my constituents.”
