If you look at American politics it's impossible for a single representative to meet all 700,000+ constituents. We need more representatives in congress. This is a wildly unpopular idea though.
I would suggest you actively seek out your representative. Actively seek out their opponents. If you can't be bothered to do that then you should have no problem with anything they do, in general.

Why should I waste my time waiting for a small opportunity to heard more lies.
And as if I could just walk up and discuss my issues. There are too many staff in the way, who are only interested in the right picture or sound bite, not giving me, a voter, a serious opportunity to discuss what I want, if I vote, and then having the ability to call who I vote for to account, if they have lied to get my vote.
Accept that the current system is not intended to enable simple voters, the opportunity to have serious discussion with those seeking my vote.
I can’t vote for anyone who does not personally solicit my vote, giving me the chance to discuss my expectations of them for my vote.
