Letters to the editor — The Courier-Gazette
This letter is to Randy Gardner who suggests that I stop complaining about other people's actions (speeding) and alter my own dangerous actions so he can continue to speed on my road.
Well guess what Mr. Gardner, its not going to happen! I will continue to complain as long as people like you put my family at risk. I have lived here for more than 23 years and the speed limit has been 35 mph. Everyone knows that. My suggestion to you Mr. Gardner is that you either slow down or go another way!
I will continue to complain until this matter is resolved. It's people like you Mr. Gardner who don't take responsibility for their own actions and always try to put the blame on someone else.
Getting my vote
I have learned that Louise McLellan-Ruf has thrown her hat into the ring, hoping to become a member of the City Council.
Louise has a good personality, is a hard worker, and would continually strive to promote our city.
She will be getting my vote and hopefully yours.
The ongoing politics in Washington shows only one thing and that is that those who have been in office eight years or more are being pinned against the wall in a matter of speaking when it comes to who gets what. The bottom line here is who has the money to make things happen.
Yes money will without a doubt makes a lot of things happen when there is enough of it, but at present Washington is so deep in debt it will not see daylight anytime soon. And all the leadership can do is act like a bunch of 2-year-olds and the press like a pack of wild dogs are right there tearing into everything just so they get a story. And oh how the lies fly, you can not get a straight answer from anyone who has anything that would solve the problems facing the nation.
And the one issue that is like a steel wall that has been put in place is the healthcare law that lawmakers are fighting over whether it should take effect or not. I will say this, I have been informed in writing that my healthcare premium is going up or I have to drop it and end up paying a penalty for not having it.
I for one will say I am to the point that I am fed up with our politicians in Washington acting the way they are acting and at the same time they are still getting their pay checks and the rest of us are paying the price and trying to pay our bills or put food on the table.
I will say this to the leadership in Washington: Either get your act together or go and this time without pay. Either do the job you were elected to do or resign from your office.
