Letter to the editor: Get behind Runyon

To the editor: I do not know the lady who is running for county commissioner against incumbent Rod Runyon. I have heard she has a “Vision for Change” (see The Dalles Chronicle, 10-10-2014). To me that is very scary! Barack Obama’s platform was also centered on “change.”

Letter to the editor: Every vote counts

To the editor: As the election draws near, I hope our community will see the importance of each and every vote. We need to vote for strong leadership and we can find that leadership in Rod Runyon. I have known Rod since grade school at Joseph G. Wilson and on through graduation from The Dalles High School. He has always been dependable and a man of character.

Letter to the editor

To the editor: I have lived here in The Dalles most of my life. I really enjoy the climate and the people. What I don’t like is the cost of living here. It seems odd that my water and sewer minimum is over $100. My brother lives in Central Point and his bill for the same service is $42.50. We must be the highest in the state. I have seen many people I know retire and move to a more affordable place to live. Which means the local money paid into their retirement is spent in another community, not in The Dalles.

Letter to the editor: No conflict exists

To the editor: It is unfortunate that there is such a broad misunderstanding of conflict of interest, and such a lack of understanding about the functions and responsibilities of county government, that these issues can be manipulated for use as campaign propaganda.

Letter to the editor: Bailey for change

To the editor: It astounds me that people will write letters to criticize others when it is obvious they have not checked the facts! Mr. George Clark did this!

Letter to the editor: City needs Wood

To the editor: A vote for Carolyn Wood is a vote for intelligence, integrity and independence. Carolyn has worked hard for our community and is willing to continue working for us. At this time there are individuals who have made this a single-issue race and accused her of being solely responsible for our current water/sewer rates even though it would be impossible for a single member of council to do that.
