Favede right choice in 95th

To the editor: If you have not made up your mind yet about who you will vote for in November for representative of Ohio’s 95th House District, let me tell you about a candidate that has impressed me and my friends and neighbors. Her name is Ginny Favede. She has had a successful career as ...

Council member responds

To the editor: This letter is in response to the letter written by former Councilman at large Kenny Davis that appeared in the Sept. 4 edition (“Consider safety levy in spring.”) He stated that he wanted to hear from one of the three sitting council members who didn’t support the ...

Democrats don’t care

To the editor: Do you know what would be really great? No, make that really awesome — it would be really awesome if the Democrats could get as outraged as the Republicans are over Hillary Clinton stealing their election and flipping the bird to the democratic process. It’s not like ...

To the editor: The voters of Jefferson County will have a variety of decisions to make up and down the ballot. For some of the positions on the ballot, it might be a difficult choice, but the choice for state senator is clear: Frank Hoagland is by far the best choice for the position. He ...
