Officials not respecting the voters

(Continued)

The questions are simple: Why do elected officials feel like they are more privileged than their voters? Do they feel like they are entitled, or better than the people they represent?

Tonal separation between leaders and their constituents, it is not good for democracy. Elected leaders need to remain tuned into public sentiment.

These officials are charged with watching over us, representing their districts and residents.

But who watches over them? What is the check to their balance?

This isn't about prime rib eating contests. It is about respect to the voters.
