SALEM — Republicans will vote in the coming weeks on a nominee for governor, but the race was really decided last month, when former state party chairman Allen Alley said he wouldn’t jump in the race.
To the editor: Monica Wehby is a dedicated doctor, but she is upset about where our country and nation is headed.
To the editor: We are privileged to have someone as qualified as Bridget Bailey running for the position of County Commissioner. It is not often that our community has an individual with her experience and education willing to serve.
To the editor: I had the honor to serve the citizens of The Dalles as Mayor for almost 12 years and the privilege of working at Wasco County for 15 years.
To the editor: I encourage voters to cast their ballot for the re-election of Rod Runyon as Wasco County Commissioner.
To the editor: If he walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, he isn’t representing our Republican principals.
To the editor: The upcoming election involves incumbents that know what to do and how to get it done for our state and county. There are challengers that want their jobs, but I urge you not to vote for change when change is not what you need. The new folks want what the incumbent’s want and are doing already.
To the editor: I have known Rod Runyon, your Wasco County Commissioner, since the late 1960s and whatever his job, radio sportscaster, insurance, plus serving his community in so many different ways, his dedication to the task at hand has always astonished me; for instance, his faithful attendance to so many meetings county-wide.
To the editor: (Edited for length.) Integrated 3D Manufacturing would like to add its endorsement and support for Wasco County Commissioners Scott Hege, Rod Runyon, and Steve Kramer. As a newly located small business in The Port of The Dalles, we would like to share our job-creation success story and emphasize the critical role these commissioners played in recruiting and enabling the successful start-up of our business.
To the editor: (Edited for length.) I support Bridget Bailey for Wasco County Commissioner. I have known her my entire life and she is an honest, hardworking and capable person.
To the editor: (Edited for length.) As the friend of Wasco County employees, I felt I needed to express some concerns regarding the upcoming election. I have seen several letters to the editor endorsing the incumbents of the county commission; even the Chronicle’s editorial has supported both Rod Runyon and Scott Hege.

Charles “Frank” Vulliet, Sr., 72, felt called to run for the Second Congressional seat out of belief that issues at the federal level are so out of control that it is a prime time to replace incumbent Greg Walden.
To the editor: Nora Ferguson will receive my vote for county commissioner. I’ve worked with Nora Ferguson for six years and had the opportunity to serve on the same board. Nora possesses all the qualities needed to be a great commissioner. She has integrity and is not intimidated by others.
To the editor: As a Korean War veteran serving from June 1950 to Nov. 1953, I’m writing in support of my friend, Bridget Bailey. She is an attorney, supportive of veterans and supportive of the veterans’ service office. She is aware of the need for a local office in The Dalles to assist veterans.
