  • Candidate: My ethnicity was a factor

    Editor, The News:

    The Primary of the Special Election for FL_HD-7 came to an end with a clear winner. My sincere congratulations to Jason Shoaf.
    April 9, 2019, came to a close with a sad realization for me.
    I took time off from work to campaign hard and so, campaigning I did. I ran a clean grassroots campaign on my own merits without pandering to special interest groups or big money funders, just like I did in last year’s congressional race.

  • Political responsibility means voting

    Editor, The News:

    Republicans like to think of their party as being the responsible party, one more representative of the voting public. The recent primary election results belie this belief. Their image of themselves amounts to either a delusion or living a lie.

  • Armed teachers could make a difference

    Editor, The News:

    In response to a Letter to the Editor last week “Arming teachers is not the answer” by Rick Soskis:
    The issue is that gun control is only directed at law abiding citizens.
    The criminals don’t care about gun control, they have no intentions to abide by them, they get their guns from the same source they get their illegal drugs.
    If a shooter picks easy targets because they think only they have the control over their victims, malls, theaters, etc. An armed teacher could make a difference.
