Letter to the Editor: Peltier Is Passionate, Practical, and Courageous

When most of us became aware of a proposed large commercial development at High School Road and 305 we thought, “This isn’t right. I wonder if it can be stopped.” While we were wondering, a few people took action to halt the development. Ron Peltier led the charge. Ron has always been passionate about preserving…

Letter to the Editor: Ken DeWitt for Parks Board

I’ve worked as a volunteer in a variety of capacities with the Parks District for approximately 20 years.

Letter to the Editor: Peltier Outlines Differences from Mulhern

Two Candidates, Two Endorsements, and a Clear Choice. I like and respect my opponent, Pegeen Mulhern. She is a good person who truly cares about our Island. We have similar platforms and worked together to oppose the Visconsi Development. There are some differences between us, however, that provide voters a clear choice between two different…

Letter to the Editor: Unanswered Questions Regarding Prop. 1

There are nagging questions regarding Proposition 1. Who at the City and on City Council knew that the preferred site was contaminated? When did they know and why wasn’t this important information made public by the City until just before the ballots arrived? These are the biggest unanswered questions. It appears that at least five…

Letter to the Editor: We Don’t Need $15 Million Taj Mahal

No Blank Check: Vote NO on Prop. 1. The City Council has asked the Community for a blank check for $15 million (plus 20 years of interest) to spend towards pursuing a Public Safety/Court facility. Their own studies show this is nearly twice what is needed to build on existing Community property. Our officers already have…

Letter to the Editor: Regarding Prop. 1, Consider Most Vulnerable

When voting, please consider our most vulnerable community members. Safety and privacy are two important goals missing in the proposed move of the police and court next to City Hall. Directly across the street from where City Council wants to place a police station/court is the Peacock Family Center, an early childhood center and family…

Letter to the Editor: Man Talks to Dog About Island Leash Law

I talk to my dog. I am not embarrassed to admit that I do it frequently. Based on recent island developments, I thought a sit-down face-to-face with Coop, my 100 lb. black lab, was in order. I faced the difficult task of explaining to him that it is a civil infraction for a dog to…

Letter to the Editor: Peltier Is Only Candidate to Say No to Prop. 1

I rarely endorse local candidates, but this time around I’m endorsing Ron Peltier for City Council. That’s because he’s thinking clearly and is strong enough to challenge the status quo. Ron clearly makes the right call on Prop. 1, the misguided effort by those who would have BI spend public money to buy its very…

Letter to the Editor: Wrong Location, Too Costly, Contaminated

The Police may need better facilities, but siting the police station on Madison Avenue is not the place. WRONG LOCATION: I concur with City Manager Doug Schulze that “it did not make sense to locate a police station in a shopping center.” Although he was talking about the Visconsi property, his comments are even truer for…
