Lee for HD 25

Lee for HD 25

To the Editor: With the November 4 election just around the corner, we want to share the reasons we are supporting Chuck Lee for State Representative in hopes you will too. Chuck is a good listener and not someone who follows a party platform.  He’s running as an independent with no one to answer to […]

Give me the reluctant candidate every time

Give me the reluctant candidate every time

To the Editor: It’s kind of like, here we go again. I refer to the actions of our former representative from Keizer, the one Kim Thatcher replaced, and his support for a current candidate. Would it surprise you to know he reportedly worked with that candidate to ensure we continue to pay more taxes and, […]

Vote for Ryan Howard

Vote for Ryan Howard

To the Editor: Ryan Howard currently serves on the same city council as I do—and I endorse his bid for Senate District 13 100 percent. While it will be Newberg’s loss on the council, he will do good things for the state. Ryan is one of the smartest people I know and does not make […]

Kim Thatcher

Kim Thatcher

To the Editor:  I was surprised by another reader’s letter in your Sept. 12 paper. He suggested that since Kim Thatcher had not “brought home the bacon,” or some other pig product, she did not deserve to be elected as our state senator. He also said she was supported by the Koch bothers, Personally I […]

On a […]

Chuck Lee is the right choice

Chuck Lee is the right choice

To the Editor: We have known Chuck Lee since our daughter started middle school at Blanchet about 12 years ago. Since then, Chuck moved into a house down the street and has been our neighbor, city councilor and friend for many years.  We have been impressed with his memory of the children he knew at […]

Mural, mural on the wall

Keizer’s first public mural on the western wall of Keizer Florist will be dedicated on Wednesday, Oct. 1. This will be what is promised to be the first of a number of murals that someday will decorate our community. The Keizer Art Association was instrumental in bringing the mural about. They cited the famed murals […]

Columnist is wrong on search

Columnist is wrong on search

To the Editor:  I would like to offer my thoughts on Mr. Gene McIntyre’s opinion of the Chemeketa Community College selection process concerning choosing a president (Chemeketa search should irk taypayers, Keizertimes, Sept. 19). I served for 18 years on the Chemeketa Board and as chair of the board. I was greatly involved in the […]
