    Election letter: Sharon Brown for state Senate

    I had the honor and privilege of working, last year, in the campaign to elect Sharon Brown to our State Senate to fill the seat vacated by Jerome Delvin as he returned to our community to serve as county commissioner. She worked incredibly hard in that campaign and was elected in an impressive landslide...

    Election letter: Spencer for assessor

    Although I have an excellent family physician, I would not select him to perform open heart surgery on me. I’m sure he could open my chest cavity with no problem, but then what? We in Benton County face a similar dilemma in the assessor’s race.

    Election letter: Ad disappoints

    Not having a television set for years, my wife and I recently bought one. Took it out of the box, programmed it and fired it up. As if to remind me why I got rid of the old “magic box” in the first place, one of the first things it was my sorry pleasure to view was one of the biggest...

    Election letter: No on Prop. 14-7

    This proposition is an open-ended assessment that will most likely never end. In researching this, it became clear that there is no plan on what to do with the monies that are collected. This seems a bit backward to me. We generally require a plan on everything in our lives; a plan is required to...

    Election letter: Phillips for assessor

    Vote for Mary Phillips for Benton County Assessor. She is endorsed by a large number of Benton County and Tri-City residents. Her opponent’s main claim to fame is his work for the Franklin County Assessors Office and he is endorsed by the Franklin County assessor. After having lived in Franklin...

    Electoin letter: Gordon for PUD

    Please join me in voting to retain Bill Gordon as Franklin PUD commissioner. I had the pleasure of working with Bill for a number of years in my position of Franklin PUD manager. I found Bill to be thoughtful, intelligent and engaged. He never shies away from making tough policy decisions to the...
