Letters to the Editor

Letter: Personal attacks on Porter unwarranted

As with most folks at this point in an election campaign, I just want it to end. I’m tired of reading and hearing the charges and countercharges, the nasty Letters to the Editor and the bitter, personal attacks some candidates launch against their opponents. Some of these aspiring officeholders need to learn that there really is a difference between one’s “opponent” and an “enemy.”

Letter: Support Porter

It is always interesting to watch disparate politicians at the end of their failed campaigns. Almost instinctively, they dive head-first into the gutter and start making personal attacks throwing mud. Such is the case with Cathy Marshall. She has made numerous false accusations about Judge (Rick) Porter. Wisely, Judge Porter has not reciprocated; nor will I.

Letter: Stop poaching

My letter to the poachers on Chicken Coop Road: How can our community virtually ignore the poachers’ crimes? It is time to report poachers’ crimes against wildlife, the community and Washington state.

Letter: Support Marshall for judge

Letter: Riggs is qualified choice

I have seen several letters in the paper touting the virtues of both candidates for county auditor. Both are said to be good workers, good administrators, honest, kind and all that, which I don’t doubt. Since this is not a partisan race for the office, political opinions do not enter in here.

Letter: Council afraid of transparency

Why are Mr. (Roger) Fight and the City Council afraid of transparency and individual rights?

Letter: Of fear and freedom

In his letter to the editor (“Charter Review Commission choices important,” Letters to the Editor, Sequim Gazette, Oct. 15, page A-12), Roger Fight could have been “forthcoming” by stating his chairmanship of the Clallam County Democrat Party.

Letter: Elect Kim Yacklin

We need a change in the County Auditor’s Office leadership. You may have done business with Karen Shewbert who owned the Sequim Vehicle and Vessel Licensing office for a number of years. On May 15, 2012, County Auditor Patty Rosand suddenly closed Karen’s office without notice and left us without a Sequim licensing facility until November 2012.

Charter Review choices important

When you look at the long list of candidates for Charter Review Commission on your ballot you may be able to pick out one or two that you have heard of and figure it wasn’t from the police blotter.

Support Riggs for auditor

After reading the article in the Peninsula Daily News about the two candidates for Clallam County Auditor, I was struck by Kim Yacklin’s statement: ”I can learn those tasks if I need to,” in reference to the diverse job duties under the Auditor’s position.

I would like to recommend Kim Yacklin for Clallam County Auditor. The public and I have had time in the past few months to analyze the goals and objectives of the various candidates in the upcoming elections.
