To the Editor:

I encourage those who supported me for Long Creek City Council to continue to do so by caring about this community. There are issues that need to be addressed. I am going to try to do my part. Let’s all try to work to improve Long Creek. Remember, you do have a voice!

We can strive to encourage the city to do something positive and take action on the challenges facing us here. Ordinances come to mind — enforcement of standing ordinances, supporting new ones! This is a lovely area, but it languishes under increased blight (on the 395 corridor in particular) and apathy.

The city did work to slow the dangerous speeding through our town, so I know progress can be made.

To the Editor:

We now have a president who is a habitual liar at best, but more likely, a pathological liar.

When Bill Clinton lied about his sexual misconduct, Republicans tried to remove him from office through impeachment. Our current president has lied over and over again about his sexual affairs. Where are the Republican leaders now?

When America elected Barack Obama for president back in 2008, even though he was not the candidate of my choice, I thought America had become a better place by its willingness to elect an African American. Boy, did I get that wrong — the haters started crawling out from under rocks all over the country. President Trump has spoken a dialogue that has contributed to hatred and division among Americans.

This downward spiral will continue as long as this vile man is our president. It’s past time for moderate Republicans to become bipartisan and to stand up against Trump’s hate-mongering.
