He treats the position with disrespect and does not display dignity. This is divisive and destructive politics. We Are Hughes have supporters from across the political spectrum. We have a shared view of returning constructive politics to the political landscape. We expect a representative to act with Integrity be Informed and Inclusive. Link to full article
