Dana Journey is 30 and running for The Dalles City Council out of the belief that youth and energy are a plus when it comes to finding new ways to create economic development. “What I will bring is a new perspective, and I’m a go-getter – when I get ideas, I like to get them done,” he said.

Letter to the editor: Do the right thing

To the editor: I’ve heard so much talk about honoring the vet lately. And, as a vet, I thank you through my heart. This makes me think of my brothers who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our children and the American dream.

Letter to the editor: Don't elect Clinton

To the editor: What do we get with Hillary as president? We will have a U.S. Constitution that is very different than it is now with the new judges she appoints.

Letter to the editor: Sincere gratitude

To the editor: The family of Sean Kennedy would like to express our sincere gratitude to all who attended the memorial service at Anderson’s Tribute Center and the celebration of his life at Spooky’s.

Letter to the editor: Much to care about

To the editor: If the reality TV antics of the 2016 presidential election have you feeling depressed, the answer may lie further down the ballot. Here there is much to care about:

Letter to the editor: Positive change

To the editor: Please vote Susan Harris for mayor. Susan is a businesswoman who will bring a fresh approach to our city government. Susan is fiscally conservative, experienced and motivated. Please vote for Susan and for her positive vision for The Dalles.

Letter to the editor: Solea for change

To the editor: Oh how I wish I could vote for Solea Kabakov for mayor! As a resident of The Dalles, but living outside the city limits, I am unable to have a voice in this election that impacts our city.

Letter to the editor: Hillary for president

To the editor: Unlike our Congressional Rep. Greg, Walden, I believe Hillary Clinton is the only reasonable option to vote for on the presidential ballot this election. Not in my lifetime have I seen someone nominated by either major party so unfit for office as He Who Shall Not be Named.

Letter to the editor: Walden: Time to retire

To the editor: It is now time for U.S. Rep.Greg Walden to retire. Rep. Walden has lost his moral compass and his sense of loyalty to the United States in his continued endorsement of Donald Trump. Mr. Walden believes that despite Trump’s predatory behavior with women, his racist attitudes toward immigrants and his unsteady temperament he (Trump) is suited to lead our nation.

Letter to the editor: Support Incumbents

To the editor: I think it is very important to retain Mayor Stephen Lawrence, and Councilor-at-large Taner Elliot, in the opposed contests. The current mayor and council have taken on some long festering issues that needed to be addressed. This was not without criticism, from some of the special interests.

Letter to the editor: Save lives: Vote yes

To the editor: The life that is saved may well be your own! Vote Yes on the Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue Bond to purchase the appropriate medical equipment, fire apparatus, ambulance and training to keep our community well prepared and safe. This new bond will pay for the replacement of our aging EMS equipment and fire trucks as well increasing the safety of our residents.

Letter to the editor: Trump will stand up

To the editor: To my faith-based friends who are having trouble voting for Trump, please do not put Clinton in office by voting for someone besides Trump. At this point in the game, if you vote for anyone but Trump, it’s a vote for Clinton. If you can’t vote for the man, then vote for the party platform.
