After hearing of inappropriate and out-of-line remarks about Sheetz made at a June 4 hearing in Harrisburg by state Sen. Jim Ferlo, D-Highland Park, I just had to speak up.

I'm a constituent of state Sen. Tim Solobay, D-Canonsburg, and so far, I haven't heard anything from him on the issue of liquor privatization or the recent inappropriate comments made by both Ferlo and state Rep. Jesse White, D-Cecil.

I want to know why Solobay isn't standing up for his constituents and the people of Western Pennsylvania and working to give them what they want: privatized liquor stores.

I want to know where he is on liquor privatization and how he feels about Ferlo's and White's incredibly inappropriate comments. If he feels these comments were as out of line as I do, I want to know why he hasn't come out and condemned them.

Sen. Solobay, it's time to speak up. Your constituents elected you to give us a voice in Harrisburg, but what we end up with is silence on important local issues.
