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.

Letter: Beware of I-594

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.

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: 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.

Serious about improving memory, energy, balance, strength, flexibility = quality of life? Start today by focusing on your posture/core alignment all day long when walking, sitting, standing, in the kitchen, yard or hobby spot. Everyone can improve somewhat!

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

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.

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: Support Winborn

Mary Ellen Winborn is the best candidate for director of the Department of Community Development (DCD).

Letter: Support Bell for commission

I recommend the election of Ron Bell to the Clallam County Charter Review Commission, District 1, in the upcoming general election.

Letter: Council afraid of transparency

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

  • Oct 22, 2014

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.
