Trey Radel getting credit from local media for outreach

in Uncategorized by

Looks like Congressman Trey Radel is off to a smart start, at least according to this editorial from the Naples Daily News.

He has one of the safest jobs in Congress, that of a Republican member of the House from a heavily Republican district.

Still, newly elected Trey Radel of Fort Myers is going the extra mile to connect with constituents by conducting a series of town-hall meetings and other public appearances and interviews from one end of District 19 to the other.

Radel, as a former TV and radio personality, is comfortable with crowds.

His predecessor, Connie Mack IV, did not do this.

Although we suspect we know what Radel will say and what his audiences will tell him, his approach is refreshing.
