Some things to think about before voting on I-594

  • Oct 27, 2014 at 7:00AM

I am writing to express my views on I-594. I am not going to make unfounded claims supporting this proposal but will endeavor to ask some questions designed to make the voters think about this before casting their vote.

Supports Initiative 594

  • Oct 27, 2014 at 7:00AM

Requiring a criminal background check before selling a gun in Washington will not eliminate all gun violence here. But passing Initiative 594 will reduce gun-related injuries and crime has it has in other states that require similar background checks.

H.R. 2548: Electrify Africa Act is good for everyone

  • Oct 27, 2014 at 7:00AM

These days in politics, especially since the mid-terms are just around the corner, there doesn’t seem to be much bipartisan camaraderie out there. There isn’t even that much camaraderie within parties, as Democratic nominees are distancing themselves from the President and his low approval ratings. This less-than-friendly political environment begs the question: Can we come together over anything anymore?

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:46PM

Potential and current liveaboard tenants are taxpaying residents and merchants of Poulsbo. They contribute greatly to the community and are capable of finding a place to park their car in the existing permitted areas.

Supports Streissguth for County Commission

  • Oct 26, 2014 at 2:00PM

Ed Wolfe is sounding more and more like a lobbyist for the realtors and home builders. They, of course, are the ones funding his campaign. I’m reminded of the old saying: “When you get to the ball, you’re expected to dance with the one who brought you.”

Supports Streissguth for County Commission

  • Oct 26, 2014 at 7:00AM

In the race for District 3 county commissioner, Ed Wolfe distinctly proclaims he is not a planner, yet we are faced with updating our Kitsap County Comprehensive Plan by June 2016. That Comprehensive Plan — Kitsap 2035 — is a map for the county’s next 20 years. Doesn’t that deserve serious planning?

Opposed to hike in utility rates

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:37PM

Enough is enough! Regarding the stormwater rate increase (page A1, Oct. 17 Herald), I am flabbergasted that the city suggests a 53 percent increase next month.

Democratic Party policies are failing

  • Oct 26, 2014 at 7:00AM

Elections are just around the corner and it’s time to evaluate the progress of current federal, state and county Democratic administrations. Real unemployment is 12.7 percent, considering those who have stopped looking for work, and workforce participation is a lousy 62.7 percent. Average income over six years has dropped $1,500 to $2,500. The debt is $17 trillion and increasing.

Supports Hansen for House position 2

  • Oct 25, 2014 at 2:00PM

I am deeply concerned about James Olsen’s ability to represent our district. He calls his liberal neighbors on Bainbridge “louses” [sic] and has directed thinly veiled threats to me such as “Don’t suffer LiberalLouse infest: Call the Orkin Man” as if I am in need of extermination (Twitter, Nov. 14, 2013).

Opposes extension of bank’s charter

  • Oct 25, 2014 at 2:00PM

On Sept. 22, I received an email from Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-6th District). Of all things, his update discussed the U.S. Export-Import Bank and how his side of the aisle was attempting to re-authorize its charter for five more years. Republicans in Congress extended the bank’s existence only until summer 2015, with good reason.

Supports Hansen for House position 2

  • Oct 25, 2014 at 7:00AM

It’s fall so we are bombarded with James Olsen campaign signs. We’ve managed to keep him sidelined so far, but it’s important new residents have the facts. He has alienated a large number of us, not through independent or conservative views, but with his public rants and demeaning name calling.

Supports Henden for House position 1

  • Oct 24, 2014 at 7:00AM

I had the privilege of attending the Hansville Q&A forum on Oct. 10. I found it embarrassing that Sherry Appleton, who has served for 10 years, had no major legislative bills — if any — that have become law. She consistently says her biggest pride is that she has worked 10 years on a bill to expunge misdemeanors from records and it will be a top priority to her in 2015.

Double-negative in Henden’s signs

  • Oct 24, 2014 at 7:00AM

I was always taught that a double negative is equivalent to a positive, both mathematically and grammatically. Thus, may I assume that Mr. Henden now favors the income tax, since he is negating the no-tax message?

Supports Appleton for House position 1

  • Oct 24, 2014 at 7:00AM

I recently received from Scott Henden a campaign postcard that causes me some concern. Either his writing skills are limited or his knowledge of immigration issues are absent. I quote from his card: “Illegals must have work visas.”
