Political correctness

A refreshing movement is sweeping our country. The political insiders, political strategists, elected and former elected representatives are being soundly rejected. Both political parties are being rejected by the majority of citizens. It’s refreshing to see new “non-politically correct” people moving to the top of the polls.

Samuel supporter

After a great deal of consideration I have changed out the election sign in my yard from what I allowed to be placed there four years ago. I am following up that decision by writing this letter of support for Montesano Mayoral Candidate Vini Samuel.

Supporting Dingler

I’ll be voting to re-elect Crystal Dingler as Mayor of Ocean Shores. Due to her level-headed leadership, the city is on the right track. I can attest to her industriousness, as we were both members of the Ocean Shores Library Board when the city dropped its funding due to financial constraints. We had to scramble to keep the library open through a difficult year, and I saw how hard Crystal worked at it.

She has her husband’s vote

I would like to express my personal opinion and observation of the Grays Harbor Port Commissioner No. 3. The present commissioner receives a retirement pension from the Hoquiam School District and now a salary from the North Beach School District. He has been a commissioner for 12 years and needs to retire.

Good job Scouts

I would like to take this opportunity to give a “Good Job” to the Hoquiam Boy Scouts, troop 100. I hope their car wash on Saturday, July 11 was a great success, rain and all. They did a fantastic job. I felt guilty bringing in my dirty car and would have been very happy with a quick once over. My car had a 20 minute makeover! Can’t remember it being to clean. Thanks guys!! The parents were pretty great too.

Festival a success

We wish to thank The Daily World and their excellent reporter Kellie Benz for the outstanding article announcing Lily Lane Farm’s Daylily Days. The festival was a huge success, due in a great part to the World’s article. Thanks to all the vendors and attendees and we look forward to 2016 and a bigger and better Daylily Days festival.

Prosecutor’s Office

As I read the headline and subsequent article on July 29 in The Daily World regarding the rape charges being dismissed against a Lewis-McChord service member due to the inability of the Prosecutor’s Office to provide evidence correctly and in a timely manner, I am reminded of a letter submitted by the Honorable Judge Gordon Godfrey during last year’s election.

A vote for Samuel

I support Vini Samuel for mayor of Montesano. I believe that she is the best qualified candidate because she has a great deal of integrity and maturity. She is a peace maker and will work hard to reconcile the different factions in the city administration, on the City Council and in our town. Vini is a good person and a hard worker who will support our families and local businesses. She will make an excellent mayor of our wonderful city! Fellow citizens of Montesano, please vote for Vini Samuel.

Vote against oil

I would like to express my appreciation to the Aberdeen City Council for its action to pass a temporary moratorium on the development of crude oil storage facilities in Aberdeen. This moratorium will protect the city from applications for inappropriate development along its shorelines while zoning codes are being developed. I am hopeful that the council will make the moratorium permanent during its Aug. 26 public hearing and prevent future oil storage facilities from being located here.

A vote for Micheau

Aberdeen voters have an opportunity to opt for one of two new candidates in the upcoming mayor race. Both are addressing serious issues that have been languishing for years. In my estimation, both candidates, Jack Micheau and Erik Larson care deeply about Aberdeen and are promising to reverse the rudderless drift of the town.
