I must take exception with Tara McKee, who wrote that the vast majority of delegates to the Republican convention, many who are male and over 65, "can't adequately represent the people of the state or party well" ("Caucus fails to represent," May 23). Just because a person is not of your demographic (sex, race, age, religion, etc.) doesn't mean he or she can't share your beliefs or opinions.
In our precinct during the caucus, we identified the issues most important to the large group in attendance, nominated possible delegates and then listened to their stand on those issues. A vote was taken and the majority chose delegates who most closely represented their own thinking. If that is not representation, then please tell me what is.
