As of Tuesday, March 25, 2014
In regards to Kevin Herman’s letter on March 19 regarding Mike Gundlach’s letter on March 12, the title being “Locals Only”: I have two words to say: Tou-ché!
Oh heck, I liked what Kevin had to say so much, I’ll say it again. “Touché.”
Help Leos help robotics
On April 5 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. the RoboHawks Horizon Christian School robotics team will have the honor of partnering with Hood River Leos to keep recyclable beverage containers from being landfilled. This community service effort occurs once a month, every first Saturday, and the money generated benefits local organizations throughout Hood River County.
The Robohawks have had a successful inaugural year, advancing to state, only because of the support we have received from the community at large. We are excited to have the support of Hood River Leos and hope that you will support us both by bringing your recyclable beverage containers to the South side of the Rosauers Supermarket parking lot Saturday morning, April 5.
I was disappointed to see the letter to the editor from March 22 calling for voters to support Stephanie Nystrom to represent HD 52 just because she is a Democrat.
Partisan politics are something that turns me, and voters of my generation, off. It’s one reason that non-affiliated and independent voter registration is growing faster in my age group than any other party affiliation.
I want a government and legislators that are effective and do what is best for their community, which means collaborating to deliver results.
Mark Johnson has a reputation of working with members of both parties to produce good policy for our district. As a school board member, his leadership helped me obtain a great high school education. As a legislator on the House Higher Ed Committee, he has developed policies and budgets that limit tuition increases, keeping college affordable for my peers and me. These policies benefit me and all others in the district.
I support Rep. Johnson because he cares for the betterment of the people and stands up for my community. I know he listens to the concerns of his constituents and focuses on legislation necessary for my community to grow as a whole.
His hard work and contribution as a legislator is visible throughout HD 52 and is exactly why I stand with him. I encourage you to support him as well.
