To the editor: Dear rural Oregon friends and neighbors, over many election cycles, I’ve listened to conservatives who didn’t cast a ballot complain “My vote doesn’t count so why bother?” Here’s why (your vote counts):
To the editor: As a farmer, I ask you to vote and please vote no on M92. First, it will not make our food supply safer.

To the editor: Keep Rod Runyon! I have worked with him many years for baseball and when he says he’ll do something, he does.
To the editor: I have served on the Wasco County Budget Committee for the last six years and would like to share my observations about Commissioner Rod Runyon. His primary concern after he got elected was to find new office space for him, initial estimates for remodeling were over $200,000.

To the editor: We encourage you to vote for Judge Karen Ostrye this November. She was appointed by the governor in June of this year and will run to retain her position in the upcoming general election.
To the editor: Let’s talk about a perceived conflict versus a real conflict.

To the editor: I am a Vietnam veteran and have always had great respect for Wasco County Commissioner Rod Runyon’s support of those who have served.
To the editor: Wasco County faces complex challenges. Likewise, there are opportunities as we grow and diversify our industrial base.
To the editor: Response to Laura (letter published Oct. 21) Hey kiddo that’s politics for you. Mr. Clark’s remarks are normal, that happens in the election crisis. To me politics is a vicious game centered on blasphemy, lewdness, indignity, mud-slinging and anything else one wants to call it just to get votes and I don’t buy it in the least.
