This person does this anonymously, so we don’t know who you are. On behalf of our food bank staff and volunteers we want to send you a sincere thank you for what you’re doing.

Letter to the editor: Voter choice

To the editor: This is a message to voters who (even though they do not want a Clinton presidency) say they just can’t vote for Trump because he doesn’t represent all of their principles and values. They say it’s more important to be right than to win. They say they’ll vote Independent or Libertarian, which is just the same as not voting at all. Sorry to break the news, but voting Independent or Libertarian (or not voting at all) will not achieve the goals you desire.

Letter to the editor: Is this it?

To the editor: I would like all voters to consider a question regarding the upcoming presidential election: Is this really the best we can do?
