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 […]

Support for Herrera

Support for Herrera

I am supporting Roland Herrera for Keizer City Council. Roland has been a fixture in Keizer for 25 years, his involvement in youth activities (Keizer Little League, McNary athletics, Punt,Pass, and Kick, youth football, water education, outdoor school) is just a snapshot of his influence he has had on our town of Keizer.

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.

Keizer’s future

Keizer’s future

To the Editor: In a past issue of the Keizertimes we learned our city is forever stuck with a $2.08 maximum property tax. With the proceeds generated from that tax, our city council has to split tax money to provide a city administration, public buildings, public works, public parks and an adequate police force. Our […]

One bill? So what?

One bill? So what?

To the Editor: So Senator Jeff Merkley has written only one bill—now why is that a bad thing?  And it seems a bit surprising that this is perceived negatively by those who who oppose government intrusion into their lives. Art Burr Keizer

Sunset Avenue herd

Sunset Avenue herd

To the Editor: I am an animal lover and a nature lover. The sight of wild animals is a thrill, well, most of the time. The past two years we who live on Sunset Avenue have had a doe and her fawns living in our yards. Yes, they are so darn cute until they ruin […]

I’m voting for Mr. Keizer

I’m voting for Mr. Keizer

To the Editor: I was so glad when Roland Herrera told me he was running for Keizer City Council.  I first met Roland when my boys were in Little League and Roland was their coach (almost 25 years ago). I was awed by his commitment and the utter joy in his attitude toward coaching squirrely little boys. […]
