Letters: Silence is consent

- The Daily News
My parents, teachers, clergy,and service in the Marine Corps, taught me love of God, family and country and to value honesty, integrity, hard work and respect for others. Sadly, today we have a president who disregards and tramples on each of these foundational values.

Fortunately, one strength of our system of government is the three co-equal branches. The separation of powers was designed as a check against abuses in other branches. Unfortunately, most Congressional...

It is time for change!

I am a retired educator and serviceman. For almost 40 years I worked with young people Oregon and Washington. For the last 27 years of my career I was a school administrator in the Evergreen School District in Vancouver. My wife is a registered Republican. I believe it is time to choose Carolyn Long as a replacement for Jamie Herrera Beutler.

I am asking that you look past the party label that may have directed your vote in the past to delve...

Letters: Union voice

Letters: Union voice

- The Daily News
Unions were formed so working people would have a voice. Union jobs provide a decent way of life, even uplifting, nonunion jobs, so employers can keep employees.   When Republican administrations move in, union jobs disappear, lowering the standard of living for all but a few. Retirement programs are fading. Insurance through employment has been gutted.   I hope people think of this when marking their ballots. Vote for the Democrats, including Carolyn Long, who will work for all...

All of Cowlitz County's ballots are in, and there's more to count than election officials had anticipated.

Letters: Not so balanced budget

Letters: Not so balanced budget

- The Daily News
The so-called "balanced budget amendment" that was recently voted on in the U.S. House of Representatives would have required federal spending in any given year to be offset by revenues collected in that same year.

Sounds good, right?

This wolf in sheep's clothing of a amendment would have considered our earned Social Security and Medicare benefits as revenue.


The Social Security trust fund is currently at $2.8 trillion. Social Security and...

Letters: Long the best candidate

- The Daily News
This year I have the great privilege of voting for my former WSU professor and master’s thesis committee member, Dr. Carolyn Long. I have thought a lot about who could beat the lackluster Jaime Herrera Beutler over the years, and I can’t think of a better candidate to represent Washington’s 3rd district than Carolyn Long! My former constitutional law professor is smart, fair, tough and has a great sense of humor — which I consider to be a sign of high intelligence....

We feel very confident that Carolyn Long should be our congressional representative.
She grew up working hard. She has been a political science professor at Washington State University-Vancouver for 23 years. That gives her the knowledge of how to work within the political system and how to achieve consensus. She has held almost 30 in-person town hall meetings because she wants to hear what we have to say. She believes being our representative doesn’t mean making decisions for us...
