We need to educate ourselves and stand up for democracy

  • Oct 11, 2014 at 8:00AM

I am disappointed in how some people don’t seem to know about what is going on in our Congress, that House Speaker John Boehner doesn’t want to pass any important bills because he doesn’t want the responsibility. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell doesn’t want any bills passed either. In fact, he said his main job was to make Obama miserable for eight years.

Supports Olsen for state House of Representatives

  • Oct 11, 2014 at 8:00AM

Retired captain James M. Olsen, U.S. Coast Guard Reserve, my father, has been an outstanding role model of a dedicated citizen-sailor who served his country for 30 years. He demonstrated to me the importance of selfless public service combined with faithful dedication to his family, church and community. I believe he would serve as citizen-legislator with the same excellence and balance.

Wolfe would be one of three votes on BOCC

  • Oct 10, 2014 at 9:59AM

I am concerned that Jack Hamilton, proponent of the candidacy of Ed Wolfe, does not know that Mr. Wolfe is a self-styled “moderate” who will be one of three votes on any issue before the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners (“Voting for leadership, not directorship,” page A4, Oct. 3 Herald).

Supports Streissguth for County Commission

  • Oct 10, 2014 at 9:58AM

Incumbent Kitsap County Commissioner Linda Streissguth and her opponent Ed Wolfe both seem so appealing it’s hard for voters to sort substance from charm. What sets Linda apart is her remarkable breadth and depth of hard-earned experience in solving the same kinds of land-use and strategic planning issues that face her now as county commissioner. It’s rare for a new commissioner to come to the job so thoroughly prepared.
