Letters to the Editors


Letter to the editor: Trump election chaos

To the editor: Donald Trump did not win the majority of voters. He encouraged hate and fear. He is at war with the press.

Letter to the Editor: Popular vote

To the editor: I'm writing about this outmoded system called the Electoral College.

Letter to the Editor: Nation of laws

To the editor: The U.S. Constitution is indeed divinely inspired wisdom, as is the law of Moses. And if we don’t quite understand our laws, either national laws or laws from Moses, then we are asked to follow them anyway.

Letter to the editor: Support Jobs

Support jobs To the editor: I worked for the railroad tie treatment plant, now operated by AmeriTies West, for four years. I am writing this because my experience is nothing like what some are describing.

Letter to the editor: Trump path

Trump path To the editor: He connected directly to the fears and frustrations of a country that had been shattered by terrorism. He ignored the rules of modern politics. He spoke to Americans in plain, everyday language.

Letter to the editor: Thank You

Thank you To the editor: We would like to give a big THANK YOU to the District 21 Education Foundation for their generous contribution to our classroom!

Commentary: Age should not be a factor for service of judges

What do businessmen Warren Buffett and Bill Marriott; entertainers Paul Simon and Bob Dylan, Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, and Anthony Kennedy, plus 14 US Senators — including John McCain and Bernie Sanders — have in common? They are all working past the age of 75.

Letter to the editor: Keep mayor

To the editor: The Dalles needs Mayor Steve Lawrence for two more years to continue moving our community forward. Steve and the council looked hard at our city budget and with a different mind set from past leaders. Roads are being repaved and repaired without an increased gas tax, water and sewer rates were scheduled to increase 50 percent in the next five years. Lawrence and the council stopped the increase and are working to find a way to lower these rates.

Letter to the editor: M100 facts

To the editor: I am very disappointed in the The Dalles Chronicle’s editorial board’s lack of endorsement of Measure 100 and misstatement of facts. Did the board even bother to read the information in the voter’s pamphlet regarding the ballot measure? Twenty-two newspapers across the state have endorsed Measure 100.

Letter to the editor: Vote Harris

To the editor: I am supporting Susan Harris for mayor and hope you will too. She has the business background and community experience that makes her an excellent candidate for mayor of The Dalles.

Letter to the editor: Harris is best choice

To the editor: [The Dalles Mayoral Candidate Susan] Harris doesn’t need a list, everyone is just sick of the dictator! The Quackenbush Gang, wow the list is impressive… the way you push this list on social media gives the impression everyone else should be intimidated and shamed for not being on it. Seriously?

Letter to the Editor: Harris for mayor

To the editor: Unlike Lawrence’s “Red Flag” hidden agenda, Susan Harris will be transparent.

Letter to the Editor: Don’t vote corruption

To the editor: This is probably the most important election in the history of the United States. We have endured the last seven years of a corrupt administration; one that followed Bill Clinton’s more guarded yet corrupt administration. Don’t forget Bill’s administration delivered us the housing bubble that caused the recession.
