Congressman Sherman forfeits harmony and ignores intellectual property rights
Why would Brad Sherman not work with local Democrat Congressmen? Is this hindering a unified effort to boost the economy and job market in the San Fernando Valley?
A November 2013 letter written by Rep Schiff (D) and Rep Valadao (R), with 31 Congressmen co-signing, urged President Obama to release the historical “Armenian Orphan Rug” for public display. However, once the favorable decision was made, Sherman used social media to tout the event with no mention of Schiff or Valadao.
Earlier this year Congressman Cardenas initiated a letter to Time Warner to resolve a dispute with the Dodgers. Sherman cosigned the letter and then a week later generated a duplicate letter, amid much fanfare and publicity, with different co-signers. Nevertheless, Time Warner very firmly stressed it was a voluntary arbitration between two PRIVATE companies and of yet nothing has been resolved.
Over 500,000 manufacturing jobs have left Southern California since 1990, when we had over 1 million such jobs, according to a 2014 report by US Bureau of labor statistics. (Ref our article: http://bit.ly/ZBwXXp )
Neighboring Congressmen must work together to bring and keep manufacturing jobs into the area. There must be across the aisle and same aisle partisan harmony for this goal to be met. After 19 years in office Sherman should know this.
