Letters to the Editor

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.

A vote for Yacklin

Council makes wise choice

Kudos to Sequim talent

Saturday night (Sept. 20) my husband and I attended a musical production for our Sequim community in the high school auditorium. It was an outstanding production and a very enjoyable evening out.

Abuse of power?

“Bullies,” “minions of greed,” “pick your pocket,” the Left uses the language of oppression to demonize their freedom-loving opponents and hide an abuse of power by the Sequim City Council.

Support Riggs for auditor

I have seen all those signs out there for candidates. Just because some have the money to spend on lots of them, it doesn’t mean they are most qualified. Before you vote, take the time to get to know the candidate.

Education doesn’t add up

Principal reasons the United States public education math ranking is 27th among other industrial nations: Public schools have low academic standards for grade level achievements compared with other nations, as exemplified when foreign students relocate to the United States they perform two or three grade levels higher than American students.

City should step up for tennis courts

Many high schools across America like Sequim High School are very good about letting the public use their courts after school, on weekends, holidays and vacations. This is all good and well when schools have funding to maintain courts and there are public courts in the area.

Who’s been working on the railroad?

Unlike Tim Wheeler in last week’s Gazette (Letters to the Editor, “A prop point clarified,” page A-9), I know Propositions 1 and 2 are not “anti-union” but pro-taxpayer and pro-employee.

Writer stereotypes ‘old men’

I’m writing in response to the parent whose letter was published Sept. 17 (Sequim Gazette, “Strangers photographing kids: creepy,” Letters to the Editor).
