Letter to the Editor: District in transition

To the editor: I can think of a no more important institution in Mosier than the Mosier Fire District, especially in light of the 2009 wildfire that nearly entered the town and the 2016 oil train explosion. However, the fire district is currently in a state of great transition: In the process of finding a permanent fire chief, a new recorder, and with a $274,000, four-year FEMA grant, written by the former chief, set to kick in by the end of this month and which will fund the salary of an additional staff person, among other things.

Letter to the Editor: Outrageous tax plan

To the editor: Representative Walden and the House Republicans claim that their new tax bill will create “tax relief for the middle class.” However, nonpartisan analysis of the measure demonstrates that it gives the vast majority of tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans.

Letter to the Editor: Cartoon was offensive
