Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s constituents are turning against her: ‘Her heart is not in The Bronx.’
People thinking that a politician would be a savior are fundamentally misunderstanding what having a representative is all about. The representative isn’t there to save you. A representative is there to represent you in government. You communicate to your representative, and your representative forwards your concerns to the body of the House.

“I thought AOC would be our savior, but that’s not the case,” complained Roxanne Delgado, a local activist who said she has tried for months to get in touch with the congresswoman for help saving an animal shelter and to clean up parks in the district.
Delgado, 40, says she has made numerous calls to Ocasio-Cortez’s offices in Washington and Queens and sent a barrage of tweets after the freshman lawmaker encouraged residents during a recent visit to a Bronx public library to hit her up on social media.
But she’s heard nothing back.
“NO email or contact on @AOC’s page except DC number which has full #voicemail and no one picks up,” Delgado tweeted on Monday.
The Post made several calls to both the Washington and Queens offices last week. The same recording at both numbers gives Ocasio-Cortez’s Web site and doesn’t allow a caller to leave a message. More
It is unbelievable that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s constituents can’t even leave a phone message and there’s no one to answer the phones in DC or her new swanky office.
She’s an entitled, self-righteous brat with loads of confidence but short on knowledge and brain power. Just a typical millennial with all talk no action. Pie in the sky thinking with no real plan of action.
The more she opened her mouth the worse her reputation became. I’d be shocked if she is ever re-elected
