FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Assemblywoman Jenne Ignores Constituents’ Request
Watertown, New York – September 26th, 2017
In March of this year, the Jefferson-Lewis County chapter of SCOPE (Shooters Committee On Political Education) asked attendees of the Great Outdoor Expo to sign a letter, asking Assemblywoman Addie Jenne if she would co-sponsor Assembly Bill A6140.
A6140, introduced by Assemblyman Marc Butler, would amend the law and “Limits the application of the “safe act” to the counties of Kings, Queens, Richmond, New York and Bronx.”
225 signatures were obtained and two letters were sent to Assemblywoman Jenne’s office, one with the original signatures and one sent by then chapter vice-chairman, John Elwood.
Mr. Elwood waited for a few weeks for a response before checking with Jenne’s staff. At the time they informed him that they were very busy with the legislative session and would reply to him when the session was over. When he did not get a response after the session had ended, he followed up several times and was told each time that a reply would be forthcoming. To date, no response has been received by Mr. Elwood or any of the signers.
“Regardless of what the subject of the bill is, the people are owed an answer within a reasonable amount of time,” said Bruce Kingsley, Jefferson-Lewis SCOPE Chairman.
“The fact that we cannot get a simple YES or NO answer from our elected representative, after patiently waiting over 6 months, is a problem.” he said.
The chapter is still awaiting a reply from Assemblywoman Jenne.
