A letter from a reader, after the elections, stated that it appears as though the same old voters elect the same old politicians and we have the same old problems. That prompted me to look into our House of Representatives to see how many were reelected overall. There are 117 freshmen that were sworn in as of January 2013 (27%). Some other interesting facts that were amazing are as follows: 1 member has 58 years of service; 4 members have 40 plus years of service; 17 members have 30 plus years of service; 54 have 20 plus years of service; 104 have 10 plus years of service; 52 have 5 plus years of service; and 207 have less than 5 years of service.
