Think Positive!

The local population, especially in Sequim, is intelligent, well-educated, mostly financially comfortable and old enough to appreciate the prosperity that used to be.

There may be differences of opinions about pot, gays, same-sex marriages, the quality of education, unionism, maybe even about the directions being taken both by state and federal governments.

But irrespective of those differences in viewpoint the greater majority still practices religious freedom, freedom of speech, right to bear arms and free enterprise that until recently was the source of employment, ergo, income; increased profit, i.e. increased jobs and income, and larger tax payments. So how can we resume those features which made the country stronger, healthier and more prosperous?

Clearly actions must be taken by voters to replace the Senate majority this November which has blocked over 300 job-creating bills, while allowing bankrupting-spending.     Similarly, if indications continue to show that the President has intentionally aided and refused to strongly confront our Islamic enemies, impeachment must be considered.

The czars – appointed un-Constitutionally without confirmation by the Senate – should be removed from their anti-business regulatory authority.

The weak-kneed House Republicans should pass firm actions in the best interests of the whole nation and the Senate should approve.

The country needs leaders who understand their primary purpose ”to protect and defend” including protecting our borders. Not just fundraising and drawing meaningless lines in the sand.

What about the middle school?

I got my ballot for the upcoming School Bond election today (April 7). As I read about the school bond proposal, I saw one glaring omission in planning for the “large number of future students”: What happens in five years when these students graduate from elementary school and go to middle school?

Letter: Vote for Yacklin

My wife and I have known Kim Yacklin for over 20 years. She is exactly what we need in the Auditor's Office, someone who has a high level of understanding of the operations of the county and someone who has the integrity, professionalism and intelligence to run a department.
