Rather than hire employees to provide services to constituents, did any of these reps ever ask why citizens need help dealing with the state agencies, then perhaps do a bit of investigating to find out: why are my constituents having trouble with PennDOT, or the state Revenue department, or some other state agency, then fix that agency, rather than hire another staffer for "constituent services"? And where does it say, in the state constitution, that these reps should be using my tax dollars to provide "constituent services"? Answer - because if the rep simply fixed the state agency, making our government more efficient, then the rep would not have the opportunity to provide brochures to the constituent, "customized with the senator's or representative's name, photo and contact information." Your tax dollars at work.
