Let’s say something good about Gov. Kasich! OK, never mind

To the Editor:

Let's discuss Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Kasich’s second term would be a disaster for Ohio and its people

To the Editor:

Gov. John Kasich thumbs his nose at Ohio voters. He assumes they are so poorly informed about his record that they'll fall for his glossy ads that paint a deceptively benign picture of this administration.

Herman Carson will make a fair and reasonable county judge

To the Editor:

I wish to express my support for Herman Carson as Athens County Common Pleas judge. I have known attorney Carson for more than 20 years. He is extremely intelligent and has extensive and varied legal experience. He is an honest and fair man.

Picky trash enforcement seems like monumental waste of time

To the Editor:

I love living in Athens because it is not one of those gated community with lots of CC&Rs telling us how to paint our houses, what not to put into our yards, or how to dress our children. So I was surprised to get a warning from Athens City Code Enforcement that my garbage can was "visible from the street."

Thompson has excelled during her tenure as county auditor

To the Editor:

I have had occasion to interact with our county auditor over the past few years and would like to comment about her re-election. Jill Thompson has always been available, friendly and informative when asked questions concerning real-estate taxes, reappraisals, and most recently the changes in our homestead reduction tax.

There’s no good reason to replace Judge McCarthy

To the Editor:

The Athens County Common Pleas judge's race is non-partisan. That means a person's party is not supposed to matter.

Rep. Phillips has been a champ for SE Ohio’s working people

To the Editor:


This letter is in support of re-electing Debbie Phillips as the 94th District state representative. Debbie has a record of standing up for the working people of southeast Ohio. She was a champion of all public employees in turning back the anti-union Senate Bill 5.

Dennis is the perfect candidate for filthy rich and corporate elite

To the Editor:

Let's say I had myself a fancy job finding just the right people to make into political candidates that will help line the pockets of some big, rich corporation. I would look for someone that will agree to remove those pesky regulations that are meant to protect citizens from monopolies, or protect public resources, such as water, air, soil, or forests from the reckless pursuit of profits for big city shareholders.

Longtime township trustee says Thompson deserves re-election

To the Editor:

I served more than 22 years as a Township Trustee and 10 years as the president of the Athens County Township Trustees and Fiscal Officers Association, and I had contact with Jill Thompson for all of the years that she has been in office. I never worked with a more professional, qualified and dedicated public official.

Kathy Hecht make a good contrast to negative Thompson

To the Editor:

With rain falling, wind blowing and leaves changing, it's clear that election season has announced its return, and the time for us to choose our future has marched into town with as much fanfare as the Homecoming Parade.
