Stauber’s declare of a very good working relationship with the 5 tribes in his district was so ludicrous it’s laughable.

In January 2019, Stauber met with tribal chiefs and stated he would seek the advice of with tribes and maintain quarterly conferences. Stauber broke these guarantees.

In 2019 and 2020, Stauber obtained marketing campaign contributions from the oil and gasoline trade and used worry techniques to say the Inexperienced New Deal would price jobs, which I discover incorrect.

The “radical” political plans of US Consultant Deb Haaland, President Joe Biden’s candidate for Residence Secretary, embody well-paying jobs, local weather options and retaining households and the planet wholesome.

Assignments to Stauber’s home committee embody pure assets with Haaland and vitality and mineral assets, to which he was appointed by Republican Republican for Arkansas, Bruce Westerman, who additionally obtained marketing campaign contributions from the oil and gasoline. Stauber’s memberships, I feel, are a battle.

Stauber despatched a letter to Biden in January, opposing Haaland’s appointment. 5 Ojibwa teams in his district wrote to Stauber, expressing his dismay at not consulting the teams. Nevertheless, “he appears (he) consulted industrial pursuits within the eighth arrondissement”, signifies the letter from the group. Stauber ripped the carpet from the Natives who voted for him.

On January 14 and February 19, Fond du Lac despatched letters asking Stauber to fulfill once more with the Tribal Council. His workplace stated he didn’t meet anybody in individual.

On February 17, Stauber traveled to fulfill with voters within the southwest nook of his district, the Information Tribune reported. I discover it ironic that Stauber refuses to go to the on line casino for half-hour to fulfill with tribal chiefs. He selected one group of voters over one other, the indigenous peoples.
