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.”

Supports Flood for District Court judge

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:26PM

Claire Bradley will make a bad judge. She recently conspired with her campaign manager Matt Clucas to reduce the charges for that attorney’s client, Marcus G. Croman. Croman was driving with a suspended license for unpaid child support, when he struck two people walking from the casino. He left the scene and was arrested at home.

Supports Hauge for prosecutor

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:25PM

I am voting for Russ Hauge and I hope you will join me. For the past 19 years, he has been exemplary as our county prosecutor. Those who know him best professionally are his legal peers in the Kitsap County Bar Association (KCBA). In KCBA’s recent poll of candidates, Russ far outdistanced his opponent in the “highly qualified” and “preferred candidate” categories.

Supports Andrews for county assessor

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:23PM

I have had the privilege of working side-by-side with Paul Andrews in Kitsap County for seven years. Paul is running for county assessor, and he is the best choice because of his knowledge, vision, and commitment to Kitsap County.

Supports Andrews for county assessor

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:24PM

Paul Andrews is the clear choice for assessor. We have an opportunity to elect a 19-year Kitsap County resident who has truly worked for us. Paul is endorsed by the current assessor and he knows the job.

Supports Streissguth for County Commission

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:22PM

In recent candidate profiles and debates, we’ve heard the terms balance, single-minded, and debate. Some feel members of the Board of Commissioners unanimously agree on everything. I suppose it’s easy to get that impression if you’ve never attended any of the work-study sessions of the board. Unanimity is not a given.

Supports Streissguth for County Commission

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:21PM

Although we have contributed to the campaign of her challenger, Ed Wolfe, in recognition of his respect and support of the government-to-government relationship between the Tribe and the County, we feel that Linda Streissguth aligns more with the Suquamish Tribe’s values and vision.

Supports Wolfe for County Commission

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:20PM

Kitsap, we have a problem. Last week on page A4 of the Herald, there is a letter attacking Ed Wolfe for opposing Title V. The letter asserts Wolfe is “opposed to imaginary issues.” In the same paper, on page A11 is a lengthy article with the headline “Title V: Back to the drawing board.”

Supports Wolfe for County Commission

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:18PM

Debbie Vancil may believe (“Supports Streissguth for County Commission,” page A5, Oct. 17 Herald) that a system where those in office get to pick a replacement county commissioner will result in getting the best, as is the game played by the Courthouse Club. I do not.

Kellen Landry's game-winning catch created mayhem at Civic Field, with Port Angeles students and fans joining the team on the field to celebrate the Roughriders' 20-14 overtime win over archrival Sequim last Friday, but it also might end up making a mess of the Olympic League postseason race.
