Elected officials are the voice of their constituents—so do Sen. Delph’s comments reflect the majority of constituents of Carmel? Sen. [Mike] Delph [R-Carmel] was quoted in saying Indiana residents are tired of pressing “1” for English when calling businesses, or hearing Spanish announcements over the Wal-Mart intercom or struggling to understand a worker in the McDonald’s drive-through.

Such comments can be viewed either in a positive or negative light depending on your social, economical and political views. Some people may see such comments as bigoted, while some will agree wholeheartedly.

My question is not how his comments come across or if they are negative or positive, but rather if they reflect the feelings and views of Carmel citizens? I don’t have to ask the Constitutional Patriots of Carmel how they feel about the comments, since I can guess they all agree, but feel free to prove me wrong, Tea Partiers. As to the rest of the Carmel citizens, are the comments a proper portrayal of the majority of constituents?
