I write today as a concerned citizen of Indiana’s 6th Congressional District to call for the resignation of U.S. Representative Greg Pence. I am not doing so because of political disagreement--although Pence’s positions seldom reflect mine—but instead because of Pence’s profound abdication of leadership in our community and nation. As we see escalating tensions caused by widespread police violence, Greg Pence has failed to explain to his constituents the context of this problem or detail any proposal for moving forward. He has even failed, as of the time I am writing and submitting this, to even make any symbolic gestures to help calm and heal our communities. I would be ashamed of myself if I had the resources at the federal government so fully at my disposal and yet remained silent.
