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.
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.
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.
Sissi Bruch is by far the best candidate to represent both District 3 and the county as a whole.
The Clallam County Department of Community Development (DCD) is charged with advising the Clallam County commissioners on matters of land use.
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.
We need new leadership for our area and Sissi Bruch is the ideal candidate to provide that leadership.
Sissi Bruch’s willingness to serve as Clallam County commissioner gives us an exceptional opportunity for outstanding leadership.
For years (usually at election time) certain people around here express misgivings and anger about the highly successful Pay-Or-Appear Program in Judge Rick Porter’s District Court I.
I attended three Sissi Bruch-William Peach forums for their bid for County Commissioner.
We have the Sequim City Council to thank for their unanimous vote to reject the Freedom Foundation’s Prop. 1 and Prop. 2, measures aimed at stripping our city’s employees of union protection.
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.
“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.
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.
I just read “Strangers photographing kids: creepy.” (Letters to the Editor, Sequim Gazette, Sept. 17). The letter stated problems in public areas such as playfields, parks and also a store.
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.
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.
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.
I’m writing in response to the parent whose letter was published Sept. 17 (Sequim Gazette, “Strangers photographing kids: creepy,” Letters to the Editor).
