A vote for Neupert My vote for Superior Court Judge, Position 2, is for Dave Neupert because he will not shy away from shaking up… Continue reading
Read this week's "Letters to the Editor" in the green edition of the Sequim Gazette.
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.
France had gun registration. World War II arrived. Germany invaded France, obtained the registration lists, stormed through the country picking up arms, if denied ownership, or refused they were executed on the spot.
On Cooper Postcard from Paris (Sequim Gazette, Oct. 15)
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.”
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.
The local population, especially in Sequim, is intelligent, well-educated, mostly financially comfortable and old enough to appreciate the prosperity that used to be.
I want to comment on the recent tragic sinking of a 67-foot vessel off the Dungeness Point (Dungeness Spit).

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.
Cathy Marshall has spent her career — and her life — helping others. She has worked with the homeless, she has worked to beautify the communities in which she lives; she even helped start a free legal clinic in Port Angeles.
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.
Mary Ellen Winborn is the best candidate for director of the Department of Community Development (DCD).
I recommend the election of Ron Bell to the Clallam County Charter Review Commission, District 1, in the upcoming general election.
Why are Mr. (Roger) Fight and the City Council afraid of transparency and individual rights?
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.
I urge you to vote for William Payne for Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney.
I am writing this letter because I want citizens to know that the Clallam County Auditor’s race is also an important race and we need to make sure we get someone in there that will bring a fresh perspective to how the office is run.
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.
