Letter: Please exercise your right to vote

I’m running for office because I want to get residents more involved in the future of Richland. While deciding where to doorbell, I was going over voting records for past elections and saw how few people actually vote. Not only are too few people registered, but too few of those who are, vote!

Letter: Lattin is committed to respect and honesty

It is my pleasure to support Ken Lattin for election as Benton County sheriff. I have known Ken and his family for over 20 years. In this time, I have gotten to know Ken and have been a witness to his beliefs in hometown values and support of the community. I believe his tenure at the Kennewick Police Department more than qualifies him for this position.

Letter: Lattin is a true steward of our community

I support Ken Lattin for Benton County sheriff. My history with Ken started when I was a young teen in high school. He positively impacted the way that I viewed many situations and opportunities in my life. Even then Ken treated me and those around me with respect and was obviously a very caring and compassionate officer.

Letter: Obamacare was designed to usher in one-payer system

Dr. Carl Olden stated, “The U.S. Senate worked behind closed doors to draft legislation that could change the future of health care in America.” I feel that the good doctor was not aware that when Obamacare was in the works, the Democrats had the door lock(s) changed. They were not just closed. The actual door was shown on FOX News.
